Justin Cobbs, California

Justin CobbsJustin CobbsCobbs’ sense of urgency in big games was on display in the Golden Bears victory over #1 ranked Arizona. Time and time again throughout the game he came up with big plays on both ends of the floor when the team needed him most. He’s a playmaker late in the game every time he’s on floor, especially in crunch time when someone needs to step up and take a game winning shot.

Mr. Anderson

Player of the Week

Kyle Anderson, UCLA

Kyle AndersonKyle AndersonThe sophomore is basically a walking double-double. Of the Bruins 20 games this season he has recorded a double-double in 11 of them, also sprinkling in a triple-double on November 22. He’s almost a sure bet to get one each game, if not come as close as possible by being a rebound or an assist shy. His 11 double-doubles are the most on his team and in the Pac-12 this season.
