Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Week (2/27/17) - Dillon Brooks, Jr., F, OREGON

National Player of the Year candidate Dillon Brooks earned his third Pac-12 Player of the Week award of the season and fourth of his career in voting conducted by media who cover the league.

 Brooks averaged 18 points on 52 percent shooting (16-31) in Oregon's road sweep through the Bay Area, highlighted a team-high 22 points and the game-winning three pointer with two-tenths of a second remaining in Wednesday's 68-65 come-from-behind victory at California.

Brooks scored seven of his 22 points against the Golden Bears in the final 2:36, including a go-ahead jumper with 58 seconds left before his second game-deciding triple of the Conference season.

 Brooks' fourth career weekly honor is tied for the most ever by an Oregon player with Blair Rasmussen (1983-85) and Kenya Wilkins (1994-97). His three selections this season match the most in a single season by a Ducks player (Jerry Adams - 3, 1985-86).

 Brooks appears on the current finalist lists for the John R. Wooden and James Naismith National Player of the Year awards and the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year.

ALSO NOMINATED: Allonzo Trier, ARIZONA; Derrick White, COLORADO; Reid Travis, STANFORD; TJ Leaf, UCLA; Bennie Boatwright, USC; Kyle Kuzma, UTAH; Josh Hawkinson, WASHINGTON STATE.
