Players of the Week

This is a new thing for me, so if you have any ideas as to how to make this better, I’m all ears, but without further delay, here are the PAC-10 Player of the Week and the Arizona Player of the Week.

PAC-10 Player of the Week:  James Harden

Harden filled up the stat sheet this week with one double-double (17 points, 10 assists – against Stanford), and averaging 21.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg, and 6 apg. The all-around numbers are what set him ahead of players like Jerome Randle, Patrick Christopher, teammate Jeff Pendergraph, and Jordan Hill.

Best Game: @ CAL: 26 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists

Runner Up: Jordan Hill

Arizona Player of the Week: Jordan Hill

Hill averaged 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. A double-double average is a great way to turn yourself into a Lottery Pick for the NBA. If Harden’s stats weren’t so outrageous across the board, Hill would’ve claimed both Arizona Player of the Week and PAC-10 Player of the Week.

Best Game: @ Stanford 17 points, 16 rebounds

Runner Up: Nic Wise

    Harden’s stats were impressive, but Randle gets the nod from me because he led his team to two wins. Without Randle, Cal goes 1-1, MAYBE 0-2. Without Harden, ASU still goes 1-1 (ASU still beats Stanford and still loses to Cal). Plus, it’s pretty easy to stuff a stat sheet in a 30-point win when you still play 33 minutes (had 17 pts and 10 assists in that game). By the way, what’s Harden doing playing 33 minutes in a 30 point blowout?

    What’s Harden doing playing 33 minutes in a blow-out win? Simple – Herb Sendek knows that Stanford would go on a run with Pendergraph and Harden out of the lineup.

    If it was just a huge influx of points, I wouldn’t give it to Harden, but in the loss to Stanford he still had 17 points and more impressively 10 assists. I hate giving it to Harden, but for this week, I think he deserves it.
