WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - California men's basketball sophomore guard Justin Cobbs has been named the Bank of the West Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Week for Feb. 13-19, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday, Feb. 20.

The second-year Golden Bear guided Cal to a home sweep of the Oregon schools, starting with a close 86-83 victory over the Ducks on Thursday. Cobbs posted a career-best 28 points on 13-for-19 shooting (.684) and dished out eight assists. He also tied a career-high for steals with four and grabbed three rebounds.

On Saturday, the Los Angeles native registered the second double-double of his collegiate career with a career-high 13 assists and 10 points in Cal's 77-63 win over Oregon State. He also tied a career-best with five rebounds and went 4-for-4 from the foul line. Cobbs' 13 assists against the Beavers were the most by a Cal player since Jason Kidd had 13 in 1994.

Over the two games, Cobbs averaged 19.0 points on 16-for-26 (.615) shooting, 10.5 assists, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.0 steals. He also went 5-for-5 from the free-throw line.

This is Cobbs' first-career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 45th all-time selection for the Bears. He is the first Cal player to receive the honor since Jamal Boykin was selected on March 1, 2010.

Cal (22-6, 12-3 Pac-12) hits the road for its final three regular-season games and will start with a bout against Utah (5-21, 2-12) on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 6 p.m. PT (7 p.m. local) before they head to Colorado on Sunday, Feb. 26. Please visit CalBears.com for more information.
