Tyrone Wallace had an all-around stellar week to lead Cal to victories over Montana and Nevada. The Bakersfield, California native has been named NetScouts Basketball’s National Player of the Week for games from December 1st through December 7th.
Wallace averaged 25.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per game while shooting 19-of-33 (57.6%) from the field this week. He scored 26 points in the second half (29 total) against Nevada to help overcome a six-point halftime deficit and lead Cal to its fourth consecutive victory.
The 6-foot-5 junior is averaging 19.0 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game this season while providing great leadership as an upperclassman. He’s a versatile lead guard that can get to the bucket or find open teammates. Cal is now 7-1 this season and looks to be among the top teams in the Pac-12 early on.
Another junior had a stellar week of his own across the country, as George Washington’s Patricio Garino led the way in a pair of victories. The native of Mar Del Plata, Argentina has been named NetScouts Basketball’s International Player of the Week for games from December 1st through December 7th.
Garino averaged 22.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game in wins over UMBC and Charlotte. He was 17-of-27 (63.0%) from the field as George Washington improved to 5-2.
The 6-foot-6 wing is leading George Washington in the scoring department this season, averaging 14.6 points per game. The Colonials feature three international players and with theironly losses being to Virginia and Seton Hall, look for George Washington to make noise in the Atlantic 10.
