Arizona Wildcats senior guard Kyle Fogg capped a superb February with his second Pac-12 Player of the Week honors.

Fogg won Monday after leading Arizona to a home sweep of USC and UCLA.

He averaged 18.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists while playing his usual standout defense. His two primary defensive assignments — USC’s Maurice Jones and UCLA’s Lazeric Jones — combined to make 5 of 26 shots and score 12 points.

The Joneses each lead their team in scoring and would typically combine to score about 28 points.

Lazeric Jones was held to 1-of-12 shooting and two points.

“He is a great player,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said of Fogg. “He was guarding our best scorer and held him really well.”

Fogg had his second career double-double against USC — 16 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. He was one rebound shy of a double-double against the Bruins, when he scored 16 of his 20 points in the final 10 minutes.

Fogg won the Pac-12 weekly honor on Feb. 6 after leading the Cats to a road sweep of Cal and Stanford, when he averaged 18.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists.

Fogg averaged 16.5 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in February. He shot 43.5 percent from 3-point range (20 of 46).

Here is his breakdown by game:

Opponent Points Rebs. Assists
at Cal 23 3 4
at Stanford 14 4 4
vs. Colorado 15 5 1
vs. Utah 17 3 0
at Washington St. 16 10 3
