Arizona senior guard Kyle Fogg earned his first conference player of the week honor after leading the Wildcats to a sweep of the Bay Area schools.

In winning the Pac-12 weekly award, Fogg averaged 18.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and four assists in wins at Cal and Stanford. He scored a season-high 23 points vs. the Bears.

Fogg made 8 of 13 3-point attempts, had two blocks, three steals and also played the kind of shut-down defense that coach Sean Miller has raved about all season. He had the lead role against Cal’s Allen Crabbe and Stanford’s Chasson Randle, helping the Cats hold that duo to 8-of-28 shooting.

This is the third weekly honor for Arizona this season; Solomon Hill won the award on Dec. 5 and 26.

Fogg, averaging 12.5 points per game, has taken over the team lead in scoring from Hill, who is at 12.2 points per game. Fogg also is averaging a team-high 13.0 points through 11 conference games.

Arizona (16-8 overall, 7-4 Pac-12) will play host to Colorado on Thursday at 7 p.m.
