A Seattle native, Roy extended his run of 20-point games this weekend to nine consecutive outings. On Thursday, Roy scored 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting (.538), including a perfect 8-of-8 from the foul line. He added seven assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block in the Huskies' 75-57 win over Stanford. On Sunday, he amassed 19 of his 27 points in the second half to led Washington to a 73-62 win over California and a second-place tie in the Conference. Roy shot 9-of-13 (.692) on Sunday, including 3-of-6 (.500) from behind the arc.
Roy converted all 14 of his free throw attempts over the weekend, extending his current streak to 32 to move within one of the school-record 33 straight free throws, set by Eldridge Recasner in 1989. His performance increased his scoring averaged to 19.9 ppg, first in the Pac-10.
Washington (22-5 overall, 11-5 Pac-10) closed out their home schedule at 17-2, tying the school's single-season record for home wins. The Huskies will travel to the Arizona schools this week, facing the Sun Devils on Thurs., March 2 and the Wildcats on Sat., March 4.
This is the fourth weekly honor for Roy and Washington's 27th Player of the Week all-time. Roy is the first Pac-10 player to earn three consecutive Player of the Week honors since Arizona State's Eddie House earned three straight in 1999-2000.
