The Arizona Wildcats needed to earn a sweep of the Bay Area schools this past week if they wanted to keep their season alive, even if it was on life support. Everyone on the team contributed to the wins over California and Stanford, but senior shooting guard Kyle Fogg was the one to put the squad on his back.
On Monday afternoon, Fogg was recognized for his efforts and received the award for Pac-12 Player of the Week.
In Arizona's first road sweep of the season, Fogg averaged 18.5 points on 11-for-23 shooting (.478) from the field and 8-for-13 (.615) from three-point land, contributed 3.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists, and added three steals and two blocks.
Fogg locked down on defense in both contests, with his primary defensive assignment in each game combining to shoot 8-of-28 (.286) from the field against him. That's quite the performance on the defensive end of the court.
This is Fogg's first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 83rd all-time selection for Arizona. A Wildcat has taken the award three times this season, with Solomon Hill earning two selections in December 2011.
The senior guard will look to continue his stellar play this week at home as the Colorado Buffaloes and Utah Utes come into town.
