Golden Nuggets: Jamal Boykin Named Pac-10 Player of the Week

Oft-underrated forward Jamal Boykin earned Pac-10 player of the week honors for his performances against Arizona and ASU.  His consistency has been an anchor for Cal's success all season.

A native of Los Angeles, Calif., Boykin helped the Golden Bears clinch a share of the Pac-10 title for the first time since the 1959-60 season. In wins over Arizona and Arizona State, Boykin averaged 17 points on 14-for-22 (64 percent) shooting from the floor and 8.5 rebounds.

In Thursday's 95-71 win over the Wildcats, Boykin scored 20 points and pulled down 10 boards for his sixth double-double of the season and 12th of his career. Playing in 37 minutes, he was a perfect 6-for-6 from the charity stripe. In Saturday's 62-46 victory over the Sun Devils, Boykin was 7-for-9 (78 percent) from the field, scoring 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 32 minutes of action.

For the season, Boykin ranks third in the Pac-10 in field goal percentage (59 percent) and eighth in rebounding (6.7 rpg). He is averaging 11.6 points and ranks second on the team in free throw percentage (86 percent).
