Arizona State’s Jahii Carson won the Pac-12 Player of the Week award.

While leading the Sun Devils to a pair of wins, the sophomore guard averaged 29.5 points, 6.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds while shooting 57.5 percent from the field and 55.6 on three-pointers.

In ASU’s 86-80 road win over UNLV, Carson posted a career-best 40 points which is the fifth-best individual scoring game in school history. He converted 16 of 25 shots and 6 of 9 free throws. He also had seven assists, three rebounds and scored 26 points in the second half.

Carson followed that performance with a 19-point outing in ASU’s 70-58 win over Bradley. He also had seven rebounds and five assists while helping the Sun Devils start the season 5-0 for the first time since 1985.

And here’s a nice story on Carson before ASU takes on No. 25 Marquette tonight.

Washington nominated C.J. Wilcox who averaged 27.0 points and 2.0 assists in a pair of losses to Indiana and Boston College in the 2K Sports Classic in New York.

Others nominated include: Arizona’s Nick Johnson, California’s Richard Solomon, Colorado’s Spencer Dinwiddie, Oregon’s Johnathan Loyd, Stanford’s Anthony Brown, UCLA’s Jordan Adams and Utah’s Jordan Loveridge.
