MBA wins Pac-10 player of week honors

“Matthew is on a roll,” UW assistant coach Paul Fortier said after the win at UCLA. “I told him some things I won’t share right now … as far as what he can accomplish. He’s doing what he’s supposed to be doing: He’s finishing, he’s attacking the rim, and he’s rebounding.”

After the UCLA game, Bryan-Amaning shared the credit with 7-foot center Aziz N’Diaye.

“Aziz’s body is ridiculous, and his length is crazy,” he said. “It takes pressure off of myself, (allowing me) to take on somebody who’s more my size and my weight, rather than having to take on a 300-pound dude for however long I played. It’s really good for myself.”

Other nominees were Kevin Parrom of Arizona, Joe Burton of OSU, Jeremy Green of Stanford, Reeves Nelson of UCLA and Nikola Vucevic of USC.
