Arron Afflalo Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Jan. 16, 2007

Junior guard Arron Afflalo (Compton, Calif./Centennial HS) of the UCLA men's basketball team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Jan. 8-15.

Afflalo hit the game-winning shot, a 15-foot jumper with four seconds left, in the Bruins' 65-64 victory over USC in UCLA's first visit to Galen Center on Jan. 13. In the Bruins' only game of the week, Afflalo scored 15 points (13 in the second half) and added three rebounds, two assists and one steal against the Trojans. The win kept the Bruins in a tie for first place in the Pacific-10 Conference with Oregon with a 4-1 conference record. The Bruins improved to 15-1 overall and moved one spot in each of the polls to second in the ESPN/USA Today poll and third in the USA Today poll.

This is Afflalo's first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and fourth of his career.

Also nominated: Haythem Abid, M. Tennis; Noelle Quinn, W. Basketball; Yasmin Schnack, W. Tennis; Tasha Schwikert, Gymnastics.
