Chase Budinger, Arizona

U.S. Bank Pac-10 Player of the Week

ARIZONA forward Chase Budinger has been named the U.S. Bank Pacific-10 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for November 13-19, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Budinger, a freshman from Encinitas, Calif., averaged 25.6 points and 7.0 rebounds in a pair of Arizona wins last week. He scored 32 points on 11-of-15 shooting, including 5-of-6 from three-point range and 5-of-6 from the free throw line in the 101-79 win over Northern Arizona. In the 102-87 win over New Mexico State, he posted 19 points on 8-of-16 shooting from the field, pulled down seven rebounds and dished out four assists.

The 32-point effort against Northern Arizona is the seventh-best single-game effort by a freshman in Arizona history, and he is just the fourth Arizona freshman to score 30 or more points in a single game. For the season, Budinger leads Arizona in scoring, averaging 22.7 points per game.

This is the first weekly honor for Budinger and Arizona's 67th Player of the Week all-time.

2006-07 U.S. Bank Pac-10 Players of the Week: Nov. 20 - Chase Budinger, Fr., F, ARIZ.


  • ARIZONA freshman F Chase Budinger scored 32 points in the win over Northern Arizona. It was the seventh best scoring total by a freshman in UA history. Add his 17 points in the season-opener at Virginia and Budinger's two-game total of 49 points is the highest point total by a UA freshman in his first two games ... Junior G Jawann McClellan set a new school record and equaled a Pac-10 record for single-game three-point field goal percentage when he connected on 7-of-7 three-point field goal attempts Sunday against New Mexico State. He equaled the league record originally set by Stanford's Dion Cross on March 7, 1996, against Arizona. McClellan broke the Arizona record previously held by Gilbert Arenas (6-of-6) at Washington State on Jan. 11, 2001 ... Arizona is averaging 97.7 points per game, a figure that is 24.0 points per game higher than last season ... Senior G Mustafa Shakur needs 10 points to reach 1,000 points for his career.

  • ARIZONA STATE freshmen guards Christian Polk and Jerren Shipp have each posted three straight double-digit scoring totals to start their Sun Devil careers. Polk has a pair of 20-plus point performances (23 vs. Northern Arizona, 20 vs. Portland State), while averaging 17.6 points per game. Shipp is averaging 15.0 points per game ... Sophomore F Jeff Pendergraph posted his first double-double of the season, sixth of his career, with 23 points and 13 rebounds - both career highs against Portland State.

  • CALIFORNIA freshman F Ryan Anderson has posted back-to-back 20-plus point games to start his career, scoring 20 points in his debut against Utah Valley State, then added 21 points at San Diego State ... With 102 three-pointers, senior G Ayinde Ubaka needs four three-pointers to crack Cal's all-time top ten list ... Junior G Omar Wilkes is shooting 11-of-19 (.579) from the field through two games ... Sophomore C Jordan Wilkes partially tore the patella tendon in his left knee during practice and is likely out for the season. The loss leaves the Bears with only one returning post player on the roster in junior DeVon Hardin.

  • OREGON has opened the season at 4-0 for the third straight season ... Junior G Chamberlain Oguchi scored 25 points and hit 6-of-13 from three-point range against UC Irvine. It was the sixth time in the last 14 games that Oguchi made six three-pointers ... The Ducks have fired up 115 three-point field goal attempts, making 50 (.435). That's an average of 12.5 three-point field goals per game ... Oregon has forced the opposition into 20 or more turnovers in three of their four games this season ... Five Oregon players are averaging double digits in the scoring column - freshman G Tajuan Porter (26.3), junior G Bryce Taylor (17.0), Oguchi (15.5), senior G Aaron Brooks (13.3), junior F Maarty Leunen (11.0). Meanwhile, junior G Malik Hairston, last year's leading scorer at 15.0 ppg, is still sidelined with a groin injury.

  • OREGON STATE senior F Kyle Jeffers posted his first career double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds in the loss at Hawaii ... After collecting a total of 10 rebounds in the first three games, Jeffers has pulled down 18 boards in the last two games ... After their game at Hawaii, the Beavers continue their road trip with games at Northern Colorado and at Montana State. OSU is the only Pac-10 team this season to play three straight non-league road games on the opponent's home court.

  • STANFORD sophomore F Lawrence Hill posted a career-high 21 points and matched a career-best with nine rebounds in the victory over Northwestern. Hill leads the Cardinal in scoring, averaging 15.3 points per game, and is second in rebounds, pulling down 5.5 rebounds per game ... Sophomore F Anthony Goods has scored 55 points in four games, averaging 13. 8 points per game. He scored a total of 59 points in 22 games played last year. Goods is shooting 12-of-29 (.414) from three-point range. He's made 70.5 percent of the teams 17 three-point field goals.

  • UCLA sophomore F Luc Richard Mbah a Moute scored a career-high 24 points in the Bruins season-opening win over BYU. He added 11 rebounds for his ninth career double-double ... Sophomore G Darren Collison posted a double-double as well with 16 points and 10 assists - both career highs ... UCLA will be making its third visit to the Maui Invitational. The Bruins went 1-2 in the 1995 Invitational, and 2-1 in the 2001 Invitational.

  • USC senior G Lodrick Stewart needs 14 points to reach 1,000 points for his career. He'll be the 30th player in USC history to reach that milestone ... Another quality performance was turned in by a Pac-10 freshman in Trojan F Taj Gibson. Gibson tallied a double-double with 16 points/14 rebounds in his debut against South Carolina. He leads the Trojans in scoring, averaging 15.5 points per game.

  • WASHINGTON has shot 52.9 percent or better in three of its four games. For the season, it is shooting 130-of-251 (.518) ... Freshman F Quincy Pondexter led the Huskies with 22 points in the win over Sacramento State. He's now posted a pair of 20-point games this season (21 vs. Pepperdine) ... Freshman C Spencer Hawes has made his presence known in the paint. He swatted six shots in the win over Sacramento State, giving him 13 blocked shots for the season (3.25 blocks per game).

  • WASHINGTON STATE is 4-0 for the first time since 1996-97 when it started the season by winning its first five games ... The Cougars won their Friel Court opener for the 19th consecutive season ... WSU is 26-0 all-time in November at Friel Court ... Sophomore G Chris Matthews hit three treys for the third straight game and tallied a season-high 10 points against Texas-San Antonio.
