Dillon Brooks honored for the second time this season.

For the second time this season, Oregon forward Dillon Brooks has been selected by the Pac-12 Conference as the Men's Basketball Player of the Week.

Brooks was instrumental last week in Oregon's wins over Arizona State on Wednesday then again on Saturday against Arizona by averaging 22.5 points on 67 percent shooting (16-24), including 7-of-12 behind the arc, along with 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.0 steals as Oregon extended its national-best home court winning streak to 40 games with the two wins.

Against ASU, Brooks scored 12 unanswered points to put Oregon out in front for good in the Ducks 71-70 win. Then on Saturday the Ducks overhauled the Wildcats, 85-58 and again Brooks found the range all over the court and scored 18 points.

The 6-7 junior forward was named for the same honor because of his performance during the first week of conference play. This weeks naming is the third time Brooks has been so honored by the conference.

Oregon travels to Las Angeles this week for a game with UCLA on Thursday night then USC on Saturday.
