If this keeps up, they’re going to have to rename it the Zeke Nnaji of the Week award.

Following a pair of games in which he did not miss a single shot, the Arizona Wildcats freshman forward earned his second consecutive Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honor. The award has only existed for two weeks, mind you.

Nnaji averaged 22.0 points for Arizona in blowout wins over San Jose State and New Mexico State, making 15 of 15 shots from the field and goaling 15 of 17 at the foul line. For the season he is averaging 21.0 points per game and is shooting 84.6 percent with a streak of 17 straight made field goals.
