Pac-12 Announces Men's Basketball Player of the Week
SAN FRANCISCO - WASHINGTON senior guard Andrew Andrews set a pair of Battle 4 Atlantis scoring records to earn his second career Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week award as voted upon by media who cover the conference.
Andrews amassed the most points (71) and highest scoring average (23.7) over three games in tournament history to collect his second weekly honor in the last six weeks dating back to last February. He averaged a double-double of 23.7 points and 10.0 rebounds and added 4.7 assists and a 27-of-32 effort at the foul line across the Huskies' three games.
The 6-2 senior guard from Portland, Ore., recorded a double-double in two of the Battle's three games, capped by a 30-point, 13-rebound, five-assist performance in a victory over Charlotte in UW's tourney finale. It is one of two 30-10-5 games in NCAA Division I so far this season.
He opened with a 21-point, 11-rebound double-double against then No. 10 Gonzaga in the quarterfinals, then followed up with 20 points, six rebounds and five assists against Texas.
After a November schedule that featured trips to China and the Bahamas, Washington is idle until Sunday, Dec. 6 when it hosts Cal State Fullerton at 6 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks.
It is one of 19 games for Pac-12 programs this coming week, highlighted by UCLA hosting No. 1 Kentucky on Thursday (12/3, 6 p.m. PT, ESPN), No. 15 OREGON visiting UNLV at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday (12/4, 8 p.m PT, ESPN2), ARIZONA STATE welcoming No. 18 Texas A&M on Saturday (12/5, 7:30 p.m. PT, ESPN2) and both WASHINGTON STATE (Wed., Dec. 2, 8 p.m. PT, FS1) and No. 19 ARIZONA (Sat., Dec. 5, 12:15 p.m. PT, ESPN) facing No. 13 Gonzaga.
