Arizona's Trier takes first weekly award of Pac-12 men's hoops season
Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Week (11/13/17) - Allonzo Trier, Jr., G, ARIZONA
• Allonzo Trier earns his second career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor (12/14/15) after posting a pair of 30-point performances to lead the Wildcats to a dominant 2-0 start to the season. Trier is Arizona's first Association Press Preseason All-American since 2002-03 and on the national watch lists for the Oscar Robertson, Lute Olson and Jerry West Shooting Guard of the Year awards.
• The 6-5 junior guard from Seattle averaged 31.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists as nationally ranked No. 3 Arizona opened the season with routs of Northern Arizona (101-67) and UMBC (103-78).
• Set a career-high with 32 points in the opener versus NAU, followed by 30 points against UMBC, becoming the seventh Wildcat in program history to score 30-or-more points in consecutive games and the first since Jerryd Bayless in the 2007-08 season. Trier is the second UA player ever to score 30-or-more points in the first two games of the season - Michael Dickerson scored 31 points in back-to-back games to open the 1996-97 season.
• His 31.0 ppg average came on efficient shooting performances from all three zones - 76.5 percent from inside the arc (13-17), 50.0 percent from deep (7-14) and 83.3 percent at the foul line (15-18).
