USC’s Mike Gerrity wins Pac-10 Player of the Week award

USC senior guard Mike Gerrity won the Pac-10 Player of the Week award in what was probably the closest vote in this young season.
Many folks in Seattle felt Washington’s Quincy Pondexter might claim his third POW award after notching 47 points, 18 rebounds and six blocked shots in wins against Texas A&M and San Francisco.
But it’s difficult to argue against the conference coaches who gave the award to Gerrity after he led the Trojans to wins over Western Michigan, Saint Mary’s and UNLV in the Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Gerrity was named the MVP of the tournament after he averaged 15.7 points, 2.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals, while shooting 18-for-29 (62 percent) from the floor including 4-for-6 from behind the arc.
The NCAA cleared Gerrity to play two weeks ago and in four games this season, the transfer from Charlotte is averaging 14.8 points, 4.3 assists per outing and 3.5 rebounds.
Other nominees included: Arizona’s Nic Wise, Oregon’s Malcolm Armstead, Oregon State’s Calvin Haynes, UCLA’s Reeves Nelson and Washington State’s Klay Thompson.
