WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - WASHINGTON senior guard Brandon Roy has been named the U.S. Bank Pacific-10 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for Feb. 6- 12, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
A Seattle native, Roy led the Huskies to their first regular-season sweep of the Los Angeles schools since 1987. On Thursday, Roy posted his fourth double-double of the season, scoring 25 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in UW's 87-73 win over USC. Roy, who shot 10-of-15 (.667) from the field, also added two assists and a steal against the Trojans.
On Saturday, Roy registered his fifth straight 20-point game in the Huskies' 70-67 victory over No. 13 UCLA. The senior scored 20 points, 13 of which came at the foul line, and dished out seven assists. He added two blocked shots, including a block of UCLA's game-tying three-point attempt with one second remaining in the game. Washington has won three straight games against the Bruins for the first time since 1952.
For the week, Roy averaged 22.5 points on 13-of-26 (.500) shooting from the field, 3-of-4 (.750) from three-point range, and 16-of-20 (.800) from the free throw line. He also averaged 7.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists, one block and one steal against the Los Angeles schools. Roy leads the Pac-10 in scoring, averaging 22.6 ppg during Conference play.
Washington (18-5 overall, 7-5 Pac-10) will travel to the Oregon schools this week, facing the Ducks on Thurs., Feb. 16 and the Beavers on Sat., Feb. 18.
