Friday against the Pioneers Young netted a season-high 27 points on 10-for-21 shooting from the floor and seven-for-10 shooting from the free throw line as the No. 17 Coyotes defeated the Pioneers 80-73.

During Saturday’s two-point victory (79-77) over the Otters, Young shot 66.7 percent (8-for-12) from the field and 71.4 percent (5-for-7), while also snagging weekend-highs of eight rebounds and three steals.
