Feb. 22, 2010
STANFORD, Calif.- Senior guard/forward Landry Fields has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week for Feb. 15-21, as announced today by Commissioner Larry Scott.
The honor is the second this season for Fields, who also earned the award for the week of Jan. 18-24. Fields is the first Stanford player to be honored twice in a season since Matt Haryasz won the award in back-to-back weeks during the 2005-06 campaign.
A senior forward from Long Beach, Calif., Fields led the Cardinal to its first two road victories of the season, earning a sweep of Oregon and Oregon State. Stanford swept a Pac-10 road trip for the first time since winning at both Washington schools in 2008 and became only the third conference school this year to earn a road sweep.
Fields played in all 80 minutes, averaging 18.5 points on 12-for-25 (48 percent) shooting from the floor, along with 8.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.5 steals.
In Thursday's 72-65 win over the Ducks, Fields led all scorers with 21 points on 7-14 shooting from the field while registering his 18th 20-point game of the season.
In Saturday's 65-55 victory over the Beavers, Fields tallied his Pac-10-leading 11th double-double of the season, finishing with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Fields, who scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half, also matched career-highs in assists (6) and blocked shots (3).
For the season, Fields ranks among the Pac-10 leaders in many statistical categories including leading the league in scoring (22.2 ppg) and minutes played (36.0 mpg), second in rebounding (8.7 rpg) and fifth in steals (1.7 spg).
