UCLA's Lonzo Ball lands second Pac-12 Player of the Week honor

Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Week (2/13/17) - Lonzo Ball, Fr., G, UCLA

National Player and Freshman of the Year candidate Lonzo Ball earned his second Pac-12 Player of the Week award in voting conducted by media who cover the league.

 The 6-6 guard from Chino Hills, Calif., averaged 18.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists in UCLA's wins over Oregon and Oregon State. He shot 65.2 percent (15-23) from the field through both games and was 5-for-11 from three-point range.

• Ball had 15 points and 11 rebounds, including 10 points and seven boards in the second half, in UCLA's 82-79 comeback win over nationally ranked Oregon on Thursday before recording a team-high 22 points and nine assists in a 78-60 victory against Oregon State on Sunday. 

Ball appears on the current finalist lists for the John R. Wooden, James Naismith and Oscar Robertson National Player of the Year awards, the Wayman Tisdale National Freshman of the Year honor and the Bob Cousy National Point Guard of the Year.

 Ball's honor marks the sixth weekly award for a Pac-12 freshman so far in 2016-17, the second-most in a season since the award was created in 1983, trailing only the seven rookie selections in 2007-08.

ALSO NOMINATED: Grant Mullins, CALIFORNIA; Derrick White, COLORADO; Jordan Bell, OREGON; David Collette, UTAH.
