Stanford's Tyrell Terry and Haley Jones were each named Pac-12 Conference Freshman of the Week after both led the Cardinal basketball programs to a pair of conference victories last week.

Terry averaged 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in wins over Washington and Washington State. He helped Stanford recover from a 12-point second-half deficit against the Huskies, hitting the go-ahead 3-pointer in the final two minutes. He scored a game-high and season-high 22 points in the win over the Cougars.

Stanford (14-2, 3-0) is off to its best overall start in 16 years and is alone at the top of the Pac-12 standings for the first time since the 2003-04 season. He unseated Washington's Isaiah Stewart, who won the honors the previous three weeks.

While Terry earned his first such honor, Jones recorded her third Freshman of the Week honors after helping the Cardinal sweep the home-and-home series with California last week.

Jones averaged 19 points on 64% shooting in the two wins over the Bears, including a season-high 21-point effort on Sunday. She's the first Stanford player since Nicole Powell, in 2001, to record double-figure scoring in her first four conference games.

The third-ranked Cardinal (15-1, 4-0) travel to play No. 6 Oregon on Thursday in Eugene.

Stanford senior midfielder Derek Waldeck was picked 66th overall in the third round of the Major League Soccer SuperDraft by F.C. Dallas on Monday.

Waldeck, a human biology major out of Santa Clarita, completed a four-year career on The Farm that included six goals and 22 assists in 89 appearances. During his ftenure, Stanford captured two national championships in three College Cup appearances to go with consecutive Pac-12 titles from 2016-18.

"When I think of Derek, I think of someone with an amazing personality and an even better work rate," said Cardinal coach Jeremy Gunn. "No matter the task at hand, Derek was someone who always gave everything he had for the program. Derek always put the team before himself and is the perfect example of the kind of student-athlete we look for at Stanford."

Waldeck earned United Soccer Coaches All-West Region first team honors as well as a spot on the All-Pac-12 first team, guiding Stanford to its seventh College Cup appearance and fourth in the last five seasons. He joins teammate Tanner Beason, who was selected 12th overall in the first round of the MLS SuperDraft by the San Jose Earthquakes.
