Roberto Nelson Named Pac-12 Player of the Week

Oregon St.'s Roberto Nelson was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week for the second time this season, having also earned the honor the first week of the season.

Only the last 2 games in Hawaii for the Diamond Head Classic counted in the Monday thru Sunday week the Pac-12 uses, so Nelson's 20 points against Akron weren't applicable. But the senior guard's game high 17 points, which included a perfect 10 for 10 night at the free throw line, that led to the Beavers' 58-54 win over George Mason did.

Even though Oregon St. lost to Hawaii 79-73 on Christmas Day, Nelson was again the game's high scorer, a 24 point outing, which included another solid 9 of 10 effort on free throws.

The Beavers closed out the Pac-12 week (literally) with a 76-68 win over Quinnipiac late Sunday night, and Nelson had another good night. His 19 points was 2 behind Angus Brandt's game high 21, but Nelson had 8 of his points in the final 7 minutes of the game, and was again solid at the stripe, making 7 of 8, which made it a 26 for 28 week.

Nelson leads the Pac-12 in scoring, with an average of 21.4 points per game.
