Walnut Creek, Calif. - Sophomore midfielder Victor Munoz has been named the Bank of the West Pac-12 Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 4-10, as announced by Commissioner Larry Scott today.
The sophomore transfer from Madrid, Spain helped the Bruins improve to 4-0 in Pac-12 play with victories over Washington and Oregon State. In Friday's 4-1 win over the Huskies, Munoz played just 21 minutes, but recorded an assist on Victor Chavez's goal in the 88th minute. In Sunday's match against Oregon State, Munoz tallied one goal and one assist in 18 minutes of play. Munoz first set up Kelyn Rowe's game-tying goal in the 43rd minute before scoring the game-winning goal with 30 seconds left on the clock to give the Bruins the 2-1 win. He now has one goal and five assists on the season.
This is Victor's first Pac-12 weekly honor and UCLA's 43rd all-time Pac-12 Player of the Week.
The Bruins will face the No. 22/24 San Diego State Aztecs on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 5 pm out at Drake Stadium.
Also nominated: Emery Welshman, OSU; Miles Byass, SDSU; Michael Harris, WASH
