Sophomore guard Darren Collison (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Etiwanda HS) of the UCLA men's basketball team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week (Dec. 11-17).

Collison led UCLA to a 74-53 win over Oakland on Dec. 16, scoring a team-high 15 points on 5-for-8 shooting from the floor and added three assists, one block, one steal and one rebound against the Golden Grizzlies. He also went 2-for-4 from beyond the arc and made all three of his free-throw attempts.
