Stanford's Randle is named Pac-12 Player of the Week


Stanford senior guard Chasson Randle has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week after leading the Cardinal to three wins.

It's the second career honor for Randle while the Cardinal has been represented with back-to-back awards, following Anthony Brown's selection last week.

The last conference school to win consecutive honors was Oregon, with Mike Moser repeating the final two weeks of last season.

The last time Stanford won back-to-back honors was 2006, during a three-week stretch recognizing Matt Haryasz (Jan. 23 and Jan. 30) and Chris Hernandez (Feb. 6).

A native of Rock Island, Ill., Randle averaged 17.6 points while pacing Stanford to a 3-0 record last week. Included in that stretch was a 68-60 overtime upset of No. 21/19 Washington, in which Randle became Stanford's all-time leader in career three-point field goals and also knocked down the tying bucket with 2.2 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

Against Washington, Randle collected a game-high 24 points along with three rebounds, five assists, and two steals. On Dec. 29, Randle posted 11 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in the 74-39 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Five days later, Randle totaled 18 points, two rebounds and an assist in a 71-56 victory over Washington State in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.

For the week, Randle shot 18-41 (43.9 percent), including a 5-16 mark from three-point range and a 12-13 clip from the free throw line.

The Cardinal hits the road for the first time in conference play this week, visiting UCLA on Thursday and USC on Sunday.
