Reeves Nelson Named Pac-10 Player of the Week

Nov. 22, 2010

UCLA's Reeves Nelson was named Pac-10 Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the week of Nov. 15-21, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today. The sophomore forward led UCLA to a pair of victories over Pepperdine and Pacific last week.

The Modesto, Calif., native turned in double-double performances in both games while scoring 20 or more points in both outings. He recorded 20 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds in the Bruins' 79-69 win over Pepperdine. He also added a career-tying three assists and one block in the game. Against Pacific, Nelson registered career highs in points (21) and rebounds (14) in UCLA's win. Nelson averaged 20.5 points and 12.5 rebounds per game for the week while shooting 69.2 percent from the field.

It is Nelson's first career Pac-10 Player of the Week honor and the 52nd weekly recognition for UCLA all-time.

The Bruins now travel to New York City to face No. 7 Villanova on Wednesday at 6 p.m. PT as part of the 2010 Dick's Sporting Goods NIT Season Tip-Off.

Also Nominated: Derrick Williams, ARIZ; Trent Lockett, ASU; Jorge Gutierrez, CAL; Joevan Catron, ORE; Omari Johnson, OSU; Jeremy Green, STAN; Nikola Vucevic, USC; Justin Holiday, WASH; Faisal Aden, WSU
