Ryan Anderson has been a double-double machine for Arizona this season and manufactured another two this week as the Wildcats swept their Washington road trip. The Lakewood, California native has been named NetScouts Basketball’s National Player of the Week for games from February 1st to February 7th.
The 6-foot-9 senior started the week with a career-high 31 points as Arizona defeated Washington State. Anderson was 10-of-16 from the field and added 12 rebounds in the 79-64 win. Three days later, Anderson recorded 22 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Wildcats to a 77-72 victory over Washington. On the week, he averaged 26.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game while shooting 57.1% (16-28) from the field and 75% (21-28) from the free throw line.
Anderson has now recorded four consecutive double-doubles while averaging 16.2 points and 10.4 rebounds this season. The Boston College transfer has been a key piece inside as the Wildcats fight to defend their Pac-12 title.
In the SEC, Retin Obasohan stuffed the stat sheet as the senior led Alabama to wins over Mississippi State and Missouri. The Antwerp, Belgium native has been named NetScouts Basketball’s International Player of the Week for games from February 1st to February 7th.
The 6-foot-1 guard was crucial in an overtime road win at Mississippi State, finishing with 25 points, eight assists, five rebounds, and three steals in an 82-80 victory. Obasohan followed with 16 points, seven rebounds, and four assists to lead the Crimson Tide to an 80-71 win against Missouri. He averaged 20.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 6.0 assists per game on the week while shooting 56% (14-25) from the floor, 36.4% (4-11) from deep, and 69.2% (9-13) from the stripe.
Obasohan has now scored at least 20 points in eight of his last 10 games as Alabama has won three of its last four in conference play. As a four-year veteran, Obasohan has taken a huge leap forward, averaging 16.0 points per game compared to his 6.2 average as a junior. He’ll look to end his career on a high note and try to spark Alabama to a late postseason push.
