WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - ARIZONA STATE sophomore guard Jahii Carson has been named Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for play from Nov. 18-24, the Conference office announced today.
The Mesa, Ariz., native averaged 29.5 points per game over the course of the week, as well as a .575 field goal percentage and a .556 percentage from behind the arc. In ASU’s 86-80 road win over UNLV, the sophomore posted a career-best 40 points which currently stands as the fifth-best individual scoring game in school history. Carson is also just the seventh Sun Devil to score 40 or more points in a game as he was 16-of-25 from the field, adding seven assists and three rebounds against the Rebels.
