From the release ...

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — ARIZONA guard Kyle Fogg has been named Bank of the West Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for Jan. 30-Feb. 5, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

The senior led Arizona to a sweep of the Bay Area schools last week, starting with a 78-74 win over California on Thursday. Fogg put up 23 points via 8-of-14 (.571) shooting from the field and 5-of-6 (.833) three-point shooting. The Brea, Calif., native also added four assists, three rebounds, two steals and a block in the close victory.

On Saturday, Fogg tallied 14 points—with nine of those points coming from three-pointers—and sank 5-of-6 (.833) free throws to lift the Wildcats over Stanford, 56-43. Fogg also posted four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal. Fogg locked down on defense in both contests, with his primary defensive assignment in each game combining to shoot 8-of-28 (.286) from the field against him.

In Arizona’s first road sweep of the season, Fogg averaged 18.5 points on 11-for-23 shooting (.478) from the field and 8-for-13 (.615) from three-point land, contributed 3.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists, and added three steals and two blocks.

This is Fogg’s first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 83rd all-time selection for Arizona. A Wildcat has taken the award three times this season, with Solomon Hill earning two selections in December 2011.

Arizona hosts Colorado at 7 p.m. MT/6 p.m. PT on Thursday, Feb. 9 and Utah on Saturday, Feb. 11 at 12 p.m. MT/11 a.m. PT.
