Huskies junior guard Andrew Andrews was named Pac-12 player of the week on Monday, one day after he scored a career-best 35 points and made the game-winning 3-pointer in UW's 87-84 victory at Washington State.
Andrews' point total was the highest by a UW player since Brandon Roy scored 35 points in consecutive games against Arizona and Arizona State in the 2005-06 season. It's the first player of the week honor of Andrews' career.
Here's the release from the Pac-12:
SAN FRANCISCO - WASHINGTON junior guard Andrew Andrews has been named Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for play from Feb. 16-22, the Conference office announced today in a vote of media who cover Pac-12 men’s basketball.
The Portland, Ore., native scored a career-high 35 points, including the game-winning three-pointer with three seconds left to give UW an 87-84 win at Washington State. His 35 points, which came on 11-for-18 shooting with a 6-for-12 mark from three-point range and 7-for-7 from the free-throw line, were the most by a Husky since Brandon Roy scored 35 against Arizona in 2005. It was the sixth-straight double-digit scoring effort for Andrews, who is averaging 19.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game during that span. Additionally, with his 35 points, the junior became the 38th player in UW history to reach 1,000 career points with 1,005 in his tenure. Andrews also had four assists, two steals and a rebound for the Huskies in the Apple Cup matchup.
The honor marks Andrews’ first-career weekly selection. It is the 47th selection all-time for Washington.
The Huskies head south to play at UCLA on Wednesday, Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. PT on ESPN2, before playing at USC on Saturday, Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks.
