Pac-12 Player of the Week: Carrick Felix

Arizona State’s Carrick Felix became the first player to win two Pac-12 Player of the Week awards, which makes him one of the favorites to win the Player of the Year award at the end of the season.

Felix, who won weekly honors on Dec. 3, claimed the award again today following a week when he led the Sun Devils to a pair wins in the first week of Pac-12 play.

The senior forward finished with 20 points on 7-for-15 shooting, eight rebounds and two blocks in 38 minutes during a 65-56 victory against Colorado. In the conference opener, Felix tallied 17 points on 7-for-15 shooting, 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 43 minutes of a 55-54 overtime win over Utah.

Felix has been one of the under-the-radar stars in the Pac-12 and somewhat overshadowed by Jahii Carson, ASU’s highly-touted freshman point guard. However, Felix has tallied 20 points in four games and is averaging 16.3 points, 8.3 rebounds with 20 blocks in the past 12 games. He’s also shooting 57 percent from the field during the span.

Washington nominated C.J. Wilcox, who scored a game-high 18 points in a win over Washington State.

Other players nominated: Arizona’s Solomon Hill, California’s Allen Crabbe, Oregon’s Damyean Dotson, Stanford’s Dwight Powell, UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad, Utah’s Jason Washburn and Washington State’s Mike Ladd.
