Josh Shipp Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Dec. 29, 2008

Senior guard/forward Josh Shipp (Los Angeles/Fairfax HS) of the UCLA men's basketball team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Dec. 22-28.

Shipp returned to action in the Bruins' 78-55 win over Louisiana Tech on Dec. 28, leading the team with 16 points. He also added three rebounds and two steals against the Bulldogs. He connected on 75.0 percent (6-for-8) of his shots from the field, but missed his only three-point attempt. He also went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line, extending his modest consecutive made free throw streak to six. Shipp had missed the last two Bruin victories with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament of his left thumb.

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