Reeves Nelson Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Dec. 28, 2009

Freshman forward/center Reeves Nelson (Modesto, CA/Modesto Christian HS) of the UCLA men's basketball team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Dec. 21-27.

Nelson led UCLA to a pair of lop-sided victories last week, extending his double-figure scoring streak to four games. He scored a career-high 21 points (7-for-8 from the field) in the 66-49 win at home over Delaware State (Dec. 27). He added three rebounds and a steal against the Hornets while sinking 7-of-10 from the free-throw line. In the 75-63 home win over Colorado State (Dec. 22), Nelson scored 15 points and added six rebounds, a steal and an assist against the Rams. He was 6-for-8 from the field against CSU. Nelson averaged 18.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game for the week while shooting 81.3 percent (13-for-16) from the field and 62.5 percent from the free-throw line (10-for-16).

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