Pondexter averaged 26.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in a pair of victories against Stanford and California. He shot a combined 12-for-12 from the charity stripe and 19-for-31 (61 percent) from the field.
In Thursday’s 94-61 win over the Cardinal, Pondexter recorded his sixth double-double of the season with 27 points and 10 rebounds as Washington snapped a three-game losing streak. He tied a career-high with three blocks and set a career-high making 12 field goals (12-for-16).
In Saturday’s 84-69 victory over the Golden Bears, he scored 21 of his 25 points in the first half. He also pulled down five boards and was a perfect 11-for-11 from the free throw line.
Pondexter won the award Nov. 16 and Dec. 7.
