Arizona State senior forward Carrick Felix has been named the Pac-12’s Men’s Basketball Player of the Week.
Felix averaged 18.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game in ASU’s wins over Utah and Colorado. The wins marked only the fourth time the Sun Devils have started Pac-10/Pac-12 play with a 2-0 record.
It’s the second Player of the Week honor this season for Felix, who also won the award December 3.
“Carrick Felix — I don’t know if I’ve coached a guy who’s played with more heart. I mean the guy doesn’t take one second off,” ASU head coach Herb Sendek said of his team leader Sunday following the win over Colorado. “His effort, and his energy and his heart have been remarkable.”
Felix and the Sun Devils take their 13-2 record on the road this week to play Oregon State Thursday and Sunday.
