Much attention will be made of The Shove Seen Sunday Night, but we shouldn't forget Allen Crabbe had a pretty darn good week of basketball beyond that; good enough for him to secure his second straight Pac-12 Player of the Week honors.

He didn't have his best game in the blowout win against UCLA, shooting only 6 of 16 (and 2 of 7 from 3 point land), but he did rack up 16 points, 5 assists and 5 boards in his 37 minutes of play. All in all, a pretty well-rounded performance.

It was Sunday's game that secured his Player of the Week honors, though - with the Bears trailing late and desperately needing a win to remain in tourney contention, Crabbe woke up just in time, scoring 10 of his 23 points in the final five minutes. On a night when the rest of the team shot 1 for 10 from downtown, Crabbe's 5 3-pointers provided the extra spark Cal needed to pull all the way back.

And if that wasn't enough already, he ended up throwing in 10 rebounds and an eye-popping 6 steals, too. Not a bad night of work for the 6'6", Los Angeles native.

His play over the last month has to solidify him as one of the favorites - if not the favorite for Pac-12 Player of the Year, which would make it two in a row for the Bears.

Good work, Allen, and Go Bears!
