Men's Swimmer Xavier Mohammed has been named ASU's Male Athlete of the Week for the week ending November 21st. Mohammed shined for the Sun Devils as he tallied three wins over the Trojans. His efforts contributed to a gritty performance by the men's team as they fell just short and they now head to Columbia to take part in the Missouri Invitational.
Mohammed notched three wins against Pac-10 powerhouse USC. The sophomore from London took first in the 200 fly, 200 back and 200 IM. His time of 1:47.80 in the 200 back currently ranks him fifth in the country while his 200 IM finish is also ranked in the top 20. In all, Mohammed has won eight events for the Sun Devils so far this season.
