Roy is player of the week — again

Posted by Bob Condotta at 1:16 PM

More accolades continue for the Huskies.

First, Brandon Roy has been named the Pac-10's player of the week for the third straight week. Here's the release on the Pac-10 site.

As it says, Roy is the first player to win the award for three straight weeks since Eddie House in 1999-2000. That stretch included House's 61 points game at Cal, which tied Lew Alcindor's conference record.

They started giving out the player-of-the-week award during the 1983-84 season, and as far as I can tell, the only other player to ever get it three straight times is Gary Payton at Oregon State, which happened over two seasons — the end of the 1988 season and beginning of 1989.

Roy has won it four times in his career, putting him in select company as well. No other Husky has ever won it more than three times — Chris Welp did that.

Payton holds the record with nine awards. Ten other players won it five times or more, including House, Reggie Miller, Ed O'Bannon, Don MacLean and Salim Stoudamire. Six other players have won it four times, including A.C. Green, Ike Diogu and Jason Terry.

Also, the Huskies have moved up in the AP Poll to 14th. And in the coaches poll UW has moved up to 16th from 19th.

Also, two links to Ken Pomeroy's site — first, his RPI update, which has UW at No. 30. Then his blog, where he lists Brandon Roy's game Sunday as his "Line o' the Night.''
