Walnut Creek, Calif. - UCLA senior right fielder Chris Jensen was named the Pacific-10 Conference Player of the Week for May 9-15, Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen announced Tuesday.

Jensen earns his first-career Pac-10 Player of the Week nod after providing some major pop for UCLA at the plate as the Bruins clinched a crucial Pac-10 series against archrival USC.

In the three-game series against the Trojans, Jensen hit .571 (8-14) with a home run, two doubles, five RBI, and six runs scored. The San Diego, Calif., native was particularly hot at the plate in the two televised games (Fox Sports Net) of the series on Saturday and Sunday, both Bruin wins. In the last two games of his career against USC, Jensen hit .778 (7-9), going 3-for-5 at the plate with a home run, a double, and two RBI on Saturday, and 4-for-4 with a double, four runs scored and three RBI on Sunday.

Jensen ended the week hitting .529 (9-17) in four games, raising his batting average 19 percentage points.

On the season, Jensen is hitting .332 with a team-leading 65 hits, five home runs, and team-bests of 31 RBI and 42 runs scored.

Jensen's Player of the Week honor is the 45th all-time for UCLA, and the second for the Bruins this season. UCLA has also garnered three Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week honors this season.
