Jordan McLaughlin earned his second Pac-12 Player of the Week award of the season, the final weekly honor of the 2016-17 campaign, in voting conducted by media who cover the league.

• McLaughlin led USC to a pair of home wins by averaging 19.0 points, 9.5 assists, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 steals while converting 61 percent (14-23) of his shots, including 55 percent (6-11) from three-point range.

• The 6-1 guard from Etiwanda, Calif., narrowly missed the second triple-double in USC program history with 16 points, 10 assists and a career-high nine rebounds in an 87-64 victory over Washington State on Wednesday.

• He followed up with a team-high 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting, nine assists and four steals as the Trojans closed the regular season with a 74-58 triumph over Washington to reach 10 league wins for the first time since 2011.

• McLaughlin is the first USC player to earn multiple weekly honors in the same season since Harold Miner won three as a junior during the 1991-92 campaign.
