Buffaloes sweep Pac-12 weekly awards

Huge week for Tad Boyle and JR Payne’s teams

Mya Hollingshed

Not very often will you see the Colorado Buffaloes win every single weekly award in both men’s and women’s basketball.

McKinley Wright IV was named Pac-12 Player of the Week, while Jabari Walker was named Freshman of the Week. Wright is the best player in the league, so it’s hardly a surprise to see his name appear after leading CU to three impressive wins. Walker, on the other hand, had his coming out party, as he posted a total of 49 points and 29 rebounds in those three contests.

For the women’s team, senior forward Mya Hollingshed won Pac-12 Player of the Year after leading the Buffs to an upset over the #1-ranked Stanford Cardinal. She posted 32 points and 10 rebounds in that overtime win. Hollingshed is the first Buff to win the award since Arielle Roberson in 2013 (!).

The final award was Freshman of the Week recipient Frida Formann. The guard from Bagsværd, Denmark (between Hareskovby and Jægersborg, just north of Copenhagen) had a game-high 19 points and 7 boards in the Buffs’ win over Cal, then 15 and 6 against Stanford.
