Oregon's Moser voted Pac-12 men's basketball Player of the Week
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - OREGON senior forward Mike Moser has been named Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for play from Mar. 3-8, the Conference office announced today.
The Portland, Ore., native averaged 16.0 points and 13.5 rebounds to lead Oregon to its second-straight weekend sweep as the Ducks defeated Arizona State and No. 3 Arizona. Oregon finished the regular season on a seven-game win streak with the two victories. In the 85-78 win over Arizona State, the senior posted 22 points and 17 rebounds, just three rebounds shy of becoming the first Duck in 37 years to have a 20-point, 20-rebound performance. Moser went 9-of-11 from the free-throw line, as well as 6-of-11 from the field and 1-of-3 from three-point range. In the 64-57 upset victory over Arizona, Moser posted his fourth-straight double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, becoming the first Duck to accomplish such a feat since 2007. He added four blocks and an assist against the Wildcats, going 4-of-11 in field goals and 2-of-4 in three-point shots.
The selection marks the second-career Pac-12 weekly honor for Moser, who also received the honor last week. It is the first time that an Oregon player has received back-to-back weekly awards. As a team, it is the second time that Oregon has earned the weekly honor two straight weeks as Luke Ridnour and Luke Jackson were consecutive winners during the 2002-03 season. It is Oregon’s 32nd all-time selection.
Oregon opens the 2014 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament this week seeded seventh with a first-round game against 10th-seeded Oregon State on Wednesday, March 12 at 6 p.m. PT.
