Washington State’s CJ Elleby, a sophomore out of Cleveland High in Seattle, was named the Pac-12 men’s basketball player of the week after leading the Cougars to a home sweep of the Oregon schools. It was WSU’s first conference home sweep since 2013.

Against Oregon last Thursday, the 6-foot-6 forward had 25 points and a career-high 14 rebounds. Saturday, before 10,380 spectators in Pullman, Elleby had 22 points in beating Oregon State.

Elleby leads the Cougars (12-7, 3-3 Pac-12) in scoring at 18.9 points a game, 7.2 rebounds a game and 1.63 steals a game.

Elleby is the first Cougar to earn the award this season and the first since Robert Franks took home the weekly honor on Feb. 22, 2019.
