Basketball: Cobbs is Pac-12 Player of Week

Justin Cobbs, who averaged 20 points, 10 assists and 5.5 rebounds in road wins over Oregon and Oregon State, has been honored as the Pac-12 Player of the Week.

It’s the fourth weekly honors of Cobbs’ career. He joins teammate Tyrone Wallace among Cal players to get the award this season.

The Bears are 12-4 overall and off to their first 3-0 start in conference play since 2009. They have won their first three road conference games for the first time since 1957 and opened league play with a 3-0 start after three road games for the first time since 1939.

Cobbs had 20 points and a season-best 11 assists in the Bears’ win at then-17th-ranked Oregon on Thursday. He scored all 20 of his points in the second half and totaled nine assists as Cal rallied past Oregon State on Saturday.

The Pac-12’s active career assist leader, Cobbs moved into fifth place on Cal’s all-time assist chart with 430 in 83 career games. With his point total for the week, the senior moved up four spots to 28th on Cal’s all-time scoring list with 1,166 in his career.

Cal hosts Washington on Wednesday at p.m., then faces Washington State on Saturday at 1 p.m.


Cal has climbed to No. 34 in the latest RealTimeRPI rankings.

    Well deserved. Was making it look real easy against the beavers and ducks.

    In today’s Sporting News they assess each of yet unbeaten teams’ chances of going undefeated.

    Their prediction. Arizona will lose its first game when it visits Cal.

    Disqus is way better, we can now downvote stupid comments and also make edits

  • Phil Green

    The transition also deleted a lot of great comments about what the University has to offer, and how the athletic department will thrive if it figures out how to get that message across to recruits, and to the broader community in the Bay Area. I wish someone could re-post what Juancho wrote on the blog after the Oregon State game.

    My self-help guru says to accept change.

    I will accept this change.

    However, I will never accept football being played on any day other than Saturday.
