Beavs' Moreland Pac-12 Player of the Week

ERIC MORELAND

OREGON STATE sophomore forward Eric Moreland has been named the Pac-12 Men's Basketball Player of the Week for the week of Dec. 17-23.

Eric Moreland is beginning to score more points in addition to his rebounding prowess. And it hasn't gone unnoticed, with the conference giving him the weekly honor.

He tallied two double-doubles last week to lead the Beavers in wins over Howard and San Diego. In the 69-53 win over Howard, Moreland tied his career-high with 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He had a shooting percentage of .556 and went four-for-five at the free throw line.

The Missouri City, Texas, native set a new career high against San Diego with 20 points and 11 rebounds. The Beavers beat San Diego, 86-79, in the first-ever game at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the site for the 2013 Pac-12 Men's Basketball Tournament. Moreland shot 71 percent from the field and went nine-of-twelve at the free throw line.

This is Moreland's first career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor. It is the 43rd all-time selection for Oregon State and second of the season. Ahmad Starks was named the conference's POW on Nov. 12.

The Beavers are back in action on Saturday, December 29 when they host Towson at 1 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Networks. On Monday, December 31 Oregon State closes out 2012 against Texas-Pan American at 2 p.m. PT again on the Pac-12 Networks.
