After putting up a combined 42 points, eight rebounds, and two assists against Mizzou and Fresno State, Arizona Wildcats freshman Allonzo Trier was named the Pac-12's Player of the Week. He shot 72% in those two games, and the 27 points against Fresno were the most by an Arizona freshman since Derrick Williams had 28 points in a game in 2009. Five different players from five different schools have now won the award so far this year

- Even though it was a blowout, we got to see more from the freshmen. Oh, and there was more to learn
