The first-place Washington Huskies have finally landed as player as Pac-10 Player of the week: senior forward Jon Brockman.
Here's part of the relase:
Brockman led the Huskies to wins over Arizona State (73-70 OT) and Arizona (83-78) to secure at least a share of the Pac-10 Championship for Washington for the first time since 1985. The Snohomish, Wash., native leads the nation in career double-doubles among active Division I players. He posted two more on the weekend, pushing his career total to 57.
Against No. 14 Arizona State, Brockman poured in 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, while shooting 66.7 percent from the field (8-12). He followed up with 19 points and 11 boards against the Wildcats. Brockman currently leads the Pac-10 in rebounding (11.3 rpg), is 10th in field goal percent (.527) and tied for 10th in scoring (15.0 ppg).
This is Brockman's fifth weekly honor of his career and the 33rd overall for Washington.
Meanwhile, UW coach Lorenzo Romar has been named among 10 finalists for the Jim Phelan National Coach of the Year Award. Details here from GoHuskies.com.
