Arizona junior forward Solomon Hill was awarded Pac-12 player of the week honors after leading 'Zona to two wins over Oakland and Bryant last week.

Arizona junior forward Solomon Hill has done it again.

Today, Hill was named Bank of the West Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Weik for Dec. 19-25 for the second time this season after the Los Angeles native led Arizona to wins over Oakland and Bryant last week. Hill also won the award on Dec. 5 and is the 82nd all-time selection for Arizona.

Hill averaged 18 points on 14-of-24 shooting (58.3%), nine rebounds, 3.5 assists and one block per game in the two wins, helping push Arizona to a 9-4 record, just as non-conference games come to an end.

Hill's 23 points and 11 rebounds in Arizona's 85-73 win over Oakland on Tuesday both were career-highs. He also put up 13 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a block and a steal in the 100-60 rout over Bryant on Thursday.

Other players nominated this week were Colorado's Spencer Dinwiddle, Stanford's Josh Owens, Oregon State's Devon Collier and UCLA's Lazeric Jones.
