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.
