USC sophomore guard Gabe Pruitt was named the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Player of the Week following his performance in USC's 71-69 victory over Loyola Marymoung.
Pruitt, who hails from Los Angeles, posted a career-high 36 points on 13-of-19 (.769) shooting from the field, including 5-of-10 from three-point range. He added seven rebounds, two assists, two blocked shots and three steals. He scored eight of USC's final nine points to hold off Loyola Marymount.
