Pac-12 basketball player of the week for the third time: Dillon Brooks, Oregon Ducks

Pac-12 player of the year candidate!

NCAA Basketball: Oregon at California Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

• National Player of the Year candidate Dillon Brooks earned his third Pac-12 Player of the Week award of the season and fourth of his career in voting conducted by media who cover the league.

• Brooks averaged 18 points on 52 percent shooting (16-31) in Oregon's road sweep through the Bay Area, highlighted a team-high 22 points and the game-winning three pointer with two-tenths of a second remaining in Wednesday's 68-65 come-from-behind victory at California.

• Brooks scored seven of his 22 points against the Golden Bears in the final 2:36, including a go-ahead jumper with 58 seconds left before his second game-deciding triple of the Conference season.

• Brooks' fourth career weekly honor is tied for the most ever by an Oregon player with Blair Rasmussen (1983-85). His three selections this season match the most in a single season by a Ducks player (Jerry Adams - 3, 1985-86).

• Brooks appears on the current finalist lists for the John R. Wooden and James Naismith National Player of the Year awards and the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year.
