For the second straight game, Washington will face the reigning Pac-12 player of the week award winner.
On Sunday, it was Colorado’s Askia Booker.
And Wednesday it will be California’s Justin Cobbs, who won the award Monday.
The Golden Bears senior guard averaged a double double (20 points and 10 assists) in a pair of road victories last week that helped give Cal its first 3-0 start in the Pac-12 since 2009. The Bears went 3-0 in conference road games for the first time since 1957.
Cobbs posted his first double-double of the season in the 96-83 upset victory over then-No. 17 Oregon, recording 20 points, 11 assists and six rebounds while going 6-of-13 from the field and 7-of-8 from the free-throw line.
He led the Bears back from a 10-point halftime deficit at Oregon State, scoring all 20 of his points in the second half to go along with five rebounds, four assists and a steal. Cal won 88-83. With his assist total for the week, Cobbs moved into fifth place on the school’s all-time assist chart with 430 in 83 career games.
Washington nominated C.J. Wilcox who delivered a career-high 31-point performance to beat then-No. 15 Colorado. He also had 14 in a win over Utah and averaged 22.5 points last week.
Other players nominated: Arizona’s Nick Johnson, Oregon State’s Eric Moreland, Stanford’s Chasson Randle, UCLA’s Kyle Anderson and Washington State’s Dexter Kernich-Drew.
