Pac-12 Player of the Week: Kyle Anderson

UCLA freshman Kyle Anderson won the Pac-12 Player of the Week award after averaging 19 points, 11 rebounds and converting 9 of 9 free throws in a pair of home wins.

The 6-9 guard tallied started the week off with a bang. He scored a career-high 21 points to lead the Bruins in a 79-74 overtime victory over Arizona State. Anderson went 6-for-14 from the field (.429) and shot a perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line. He recorded his eighth double-double of the season with 15 rebounds and added three assists, four blocks and a steal.

During a 74-69 win over then-No. 11 Arizona, Anderson tallied 17 points as he shot 8-for-16 from the field (.500). He also had seven rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal

It’s the first time Anderson has won the award and the second time a UCLA player has received the honor. Freshman Shabazz Muhammad won on Dec. 31.

Surprisingly, Washington didn’t nominate a player last week even though Scott Suggs and C.J. Wilcox each scored 23 points in a 72-68 win over Washington State.

Other nominees include: Arizona’s Kevin Parrom, California’s Tyrone Wallace, Colorado’s Andre Roberson, Oregon’s Arsalan Kazemi, Oregon State’s Roberto Nelson, Stanford’s Chasson Randle and USC’s Eric Wise.
