Pac-12 basketball player of the week: USC Trojans guard Shaqquan Aaron

Fight on!

NCAA Basketball: UCLA at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

USC Trojans guard Shaqquan Aaron earned the Pac-12 Player of the Week award in voting conducted by media who cover the league.

The 6-7 guard from Seattle came off the bench to lead USC to an 84-76 win over crosstown rival No. 8 UCLA on Wednesday. Aaron scored a career-high 23 points in 26 minutes of action, making 6-of-12 field goals, including four of USC's season-high-tying 14 three-pointers, and 7-of-8 free throws.

Aaron's performance helped the Trojans knock off their city rivals for the fourth straight time, lifting the program to its best start at 18-4 since the 1992-93 season.

It marks the seventh time in 12 weeks that a first-year Pac-12 player has earned the league's weekly honor. He’s the second USC player to earn Pac-12 player of the year honors, joining Jordan McLaughlin.
