Junior guard Justin Cobbs, who hit the game-winning shot at Oregon, then scored 18 points in the Bears’ victory at Oregon State, has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week.
That’s three Pac-10 PofW awards in a row for the Bears, who were represented the two previous week by Allen Crabbe. It’s the second time this season and the third time in his career Cobbs has earned the honor.
Cobbs’ tie-breaking shot with 0.7 seconds left at Oregon lifted the Bears to a 48-46 win over the first-place Ducks. He finished with 14 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
At OSU, Cobbs hit a 3-pointer with 2:49 left to help the Bears secure a 60-59 victory. In addition to his 18 points, Cobbs delivered five assists as the Bears improved to 10-5 in Pac-12 play, moving into sole possession of fourth place.
For the week, Cobbs averaged 16 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.0 assists.
