UCLA sophomore Kyle Anderson won the Pac-12 player of the week award Monday after averaging 15.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 7.5 assists in a pair of Bruins wins.
The 6-9 guard finished with 13 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds in UCLA’s 91-74 win over Stanford last Thursday. Three days later, he tallied 17 points, a team-high 12 rebounds and five assists in UCLA’s 76-64 win over California.
Anderson is currently averaging closer to a triple-double than any other player in the country. He has registered 15.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 6.7 assists per game and is the conference’s only player to rank in the top five in rebounds, assists and steals (1.8). Anderson leads the Pac-12 with 6.7 assists per game and ranks fourth with a 2.2 assist turnover ratio, through 20 games.
