Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Week (2/5/18) - Noah Dickerson, Jr., F, WASHINGTON
SAN FRANCISCO – Junior Noah Dickerson led WASHINGTON to its first back-to-back wins over ranked opponents since 2007 to earn his first career Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week nod as voted upon by media members who cover the league.
• Dickerson averaged a double-double of 23.0 points on 55 percent shooting (17-35) and 11.5 rebounds in Washington’s upset victories over #25 Arizona State, 68-64, and #9 Arizona 78-75, last week.
• The 6-8 forward from Atlanta led all players with 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting (62.5 percent) and added seven rebounds and one block in the Huskies' dramatic upset of the Wildcats on Saturday. It marked Washington’s third victory over a ranked opponent this season, including its second top-10 upset.
• On Thursday, he totaled 21 points and 16 rebounds for his second 20/10 double-double of the season in the triumph over ASU.
• Dickerson, his team's leading rebounder (8.1 rpg) and second-leading scorer (15.0 ppg), has helped Washington to one of the best turnarounds in college basketball this season - a +12.0-game improvement that is the best among major conference teams to date.
• With its first four-game Conference win streak since 2013, Washington (17-6, 7-3) is currently in third place in the Pac-12 standings, just 1.5 games out of first, after being picked 10th in the preseason media poll. The Huskies travel to Oregon this week, facing the Ducks on Thursday at 7 p.m. PT on FS1 and Oregon State on Saturday at 7 p.m. PT on ESPNU.
