Roy is player of the week — again
Posted by Bob Condotta at 1:16 PM
More accolades continue for the Huskies.
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.
