Washington guard C.J. Wilcox was named Pac-12 Player of the week after helping the Huskies to a Bay Area sweep of Cal and Stanford.
Wilcox averaged 23.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks in those two games. Washington started the week with a 62-47 win at Cal during which Wilcox scored a game-high 19 points and tied his then career-high with eight rebounds.
The Huskies then beat Stanford 65-60. Wilcox shot 62.5 percent from the field and 66.7 from behind the 3-point line on the way to 27 points, one short of his career high. He scored 11 of the team’s last 15 points in the game. Wilcox also set a career-high with nine rebounds.
This is Wilcox’s second career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor. He earned his first Player of the Week Nov. 14, 2011. It is the 45th all-time selection for Washington and their first this season.
The sweep over the Cardinal and the Golden Bears was the first for the Huskies since 1985. Washington has started the Pac-12 season with three-consecutive road wins for the first time since 1912.Read more here: http://blog.thenewstribune.com/uwsports/2013/01/14/wilcox-pac-12-player-of-the-
