WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - OREGON senior forward Mike Moser has been named Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for play from Feb. 24-Mar. 2, the Conference office announced today.
The Portland, Ore., native averaged 16.0 points, 16.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists to lead Oregon to a road sweep in Los Angeles. In the 87-83 double-overtime victory over UCLA, Moser recorded 20 rebounds, the most by an Oregon player in 37 years since Greg Ballard reached 20 boards in a five-overtime game in 1977. The redshirt senior added 12 points, five assists, a block and a steal against the Bruins, shooting 4-of-15 from the field and 3-of-4 from the charity stripe. Against USC, Moser tied the game high with 20 points, going 9-of-15 in field goals and 2-of-5 from beyond the three-point line. He added 12 rebounds, four assists, a block and a steal to lead Oregon to a 78-63 road win over the Trojans.
The selection marks the first-career Pac-12 weekly honor for Moser, who transferred to the Ducks from UNLV where he received four Mountain West Conference player of the week awards. It is Oregon’s 31st all-time selection and its first since E.J. Singler received a player of the week nod on Feb. 23, 2012.
Oregon closes out the regular season this week at home against Arizona State and Arizona. The Ducks take on the Sun Devils on Tuesday, Mar. 4 at 8 p.m. PT on FOX Sports 1. They host the Wildcats on Saturday, Mar. 8 at 1 p.m. PT on CBS.
