Basketball junior Johnson earns Pac-12 Player of the Week

On Monday, the Pac-12 announced that it selected Arizona junior guard Nick Johnson as its Player of the Week.

Johnson averaged 17.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists last week, as the NIT Season Tip-Off Most Outstanding Player led the Wildcats to their record-tying fourth title.

He also was 14-of-17 from the free throw line in Arizona’s 66-62 win over Drexel and a 72-66 triumph over Duke last week.

Johnson was the third Wildcat to be named preseason NIT MOP, after Chris Mills in 1990 and Gilbert Arenas in 1999.
