On Thursday against the Utes, Nnaji tied for game-high honors with 24 points while also adding eight rebounds on 9-of-12 shooting. He followed that up with 12 points and 12 rebounds against No. 20 Colorado on Saturday, his seventh double-double of the season and third in Pac-12 play.

Only Washington’s Isaiah Stewart (4) has claimed the freshman of the week honor more in the Pac-12 this season.
