CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State senior guard Roberto Nelson was named the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for the second time this season, Commissioner Larry Scott announced on Monday.

Nelson averaged 20.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists to lead the Beavers to a 2-1 record this past week with wins over George Mason (58-54) and Quinnipiac (76-68). He also knocked down 26 of his 28 free throw attempts (92.9 percent), including a perfect 10-for-10 in the win over George Mason.

The Santa Barbara, Calif., native was also honored as the Pac-12 Player of the Week on Nov. 18 when he averaged 27.5 points and 7.0 assists, while shooting 52.9 percent (18-of-34) from the field and 88.9 percent (16-of-18) from the free throw line, in wins over Portland (79-73) and Maryland (90-83).

Nelson leads the Pac-12 in scoring at 21.4 points per game and recently moved into 10th on Oregon State’s career scoring list with 1,339 points.

He joins Gary Payton (9), A.C. Green (4), Scott Haskin (3), David Lucas (3), Jose Ortiz (3), Brent Barry (2), Corey Benjamin (2), Chad Scott (2), Charlie Sitton (2), Jared Cunningham (2) and Ahmad Starks (2) as Oregon State players to win the award more than once.

This is the 45th time an Oregon State player has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week (A.C. Green and Charlie Sitton shared it on March 12, 1984) with seven of them coming in the past three seasons.
