Bobcat men add Utah Valley transfer

Posted: Updated:

Few moments from the 2015-16 men’s basketball season seared into Brian Fish’s memory, but Konner Frey’s 26-point, nine-rebound effort against the Cats is one of them. MSU survived 76-72 in December.

“That was a pretty good job interview,” Fish said with a smile Thursday in announcing that Frey was transferring to MSU. The game featured a memorable individual duel between Frey and MSU’s Tyler Hall, who scored 25 points with 10 rebounds.

“Konner is a very intelligent player and an excellent student,” Fish said. “The opportunity to study political science with an emphasis on international relations and a minor in international business really attracted him to Montana State. He’s a well-rounded, mature player, and watching him in person last December was very impressive.”

Frey averaged 14.1 points and a team-high 7.1 rebounds a game in 2015-16, adding 36 assists, 18 steals and 11 blocked shots. He shot 42.2% from the floor, 33.3% (45-for-135) from three-point range, and 72.4% from the free throw line. WAC coaches named Frey logged four double-doubles, with the 26 points against MSU his season high, he was named 2nd Team All-WAC, at least one media outlet tabbed him WAC Newcomer of the Year, and WAC coaches named him to the league’s All-Newcomer Team.

He began his college career at Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming, in 2011-12, starting 30 of his 31 games while averaging 7.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.8 steals per game. He shot 45.4% from the floor, 37% from three-point range, leading the Trappers to a 22-9 overall mark. After a two-year LDS Church Mission served in Singapore (2012-14), Frey spent his sophomore season at Utah State in 2014-15, playing 10 minutes spread out over four games. He grabbed four rebounds and blocked a shot on the season.

A 6-6, 215 lb product of Bountiful, Utah, Frey earned 5A All-State honors from the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News as a senior at Viewmont High. A team captain, he averaged 11.9 points, 6.9 boards, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals that season, and was selected to the Davis County All-Star Game.
