While it has been an up-and-down season for the Arizona Wildcats, Zeke Nnaji has been as consistent as they come.

Nnaji was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week on Monday, his fourth time winning the nomination, tied with Washington’s Isaiah Stewart for the most in the conference.

Nnaji averaged 21 points and eight rebounds on 61 percent shooting in Arizona’s road sweep of the Bay Area schools. His 21-point, 11-rebound double-double against Stanford was his league-leading 12th of the season, tied for second-most among all freshmen.

For the season, Nnaji is averaging 16.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game while shooting 61 percent from the field, leading the Wildcats in all four categories.

The former four-star recruit is projected to be the 27th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft by ESPN/DraftExpress.

Nnaji’s Wildcats are one of four team’s tied atop the Pac-12 with four conference losses. They host Oregon State and Oregon this weekend.

Arizona moved into the AP Top 25 after sweeping the Bay Area schools, checking in at No. 24 in the latest poll.

Arizona State’s Remy Martin was named the Pac-12’s Player of the Week.
