UW forward Jon Brockman has been named Pac-10 player of the week for his play in the Huskies wins over Oregon and Oregon State.
Here is the conference news release:
University of Washington junior Jon Brockman, who averaged 23.5 points and 15.0 rebounds in two wins, was named the U.S. Bank Pacific-10 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week for Jan. 14-20, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced Monday.
Brockman, a junior from Snohomish (Wash.) High School, registered two double-doubles while shooting 62 percent from the field last week to lead the Huskies to a pair of home victories over their Northwest rivals.
The 6-foot-7 forward converted 7-of-10 shots from the field in a 78-70 win over Oregon on Jan. 17. He amassed 21 points, 16 rebounds, three steals and two assists in Washington's seventh straight home victory over the Ducks.
Brockman supplied a game-high 26 points and 14 rebounds along with two assists, leading the Huskies to an 83-74 win over Oregon State on Jan. 19.
He recorded his eighth and ninth 20-point performances of the season.
Brockman, who led all Pac-10 players in rebounding and double-doubles last season, is averaging a double-double with 18.7 points and a conference-leading 11.6 rebounds per game. His 12 double-doubles lead all Pac-10 players this season.
This is the fourth time Brockman has received the Pac-10's weekly award, his third this season. He earned the conference honor on Dec. 24 and Nov. 20. Brockman was also recognized once last season, on Feb. 12, 2007.
Brockman is just the second UW player to receive four Pac-10 Player of the Week awards during his career. He joins Brandon Roy, who collected three of his four Pac-10 weekly honors during the 2005-06 season.
Brockman garnered the 32nd Player of the Week recognition for a Husky. He is a Wooden Award Candidate and was a member of the All-Pac-10 team in 2007.
