Pac-12 Player of the Week: C.J. Wilcox
Washington guard C.J. Wilcox won the Pac-12 Player of the Week award today.
The Husky junior averaged 23.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks while leading UW to a pair of wins in the Bay Area.
He tallied 19 points and eight rebounds in a 62-47 win at California. He also scored 27 points -one shy of his personal best – and collected a career-high nine rebounds in a 65-60 win at Stanford. Against the Cardinal, Wilcox scored 11 of UW’s last 15 points.
The Bay Area sweep was the first for Washington since 1985. And the Huskies’ 3-0 Pac-12 start on the road, is also the first since 1912.
Wilcox’s 21.3 scoring average in Pac-12 games is first in the conference. He’s averaging 19.0 in 16 games this season, which is third in the Pac-12.
It’s the second time Wilcox has won P-12 POW honors. He won the award Nov. 14,2011.
Other players nominated: Arizona’s Mark Lyons, Arizona State’s Jahii Carson, Oregon’s Carlos Emory, Stanford’s Dwight Powell, UCLA’s Travis Wear and USC’s Dewayne Dedmon.
