Men's basketball: J'Vonne Hadley named Pac-12 Player of the Week

Mar. 11—Needing two more wins on the final weekend of the regular season to secure a top-four league finish and, more importantly, bolster the NCAA Tournament credentials, Colorado put together a clutch weekend in Oregon.

J'Vonne Hadley was a big reason why.

On Monday, CU's versatile 6-foot-6 guard was honored with the final men's basketball Player of the Week award for the Pac-12 era, earning the nod following his big games at Oregon and Oregon State.

Hadley sparked the key win at Oregon on Thursday by hitting a career-high four 3-pointers on four attempts, posting the third double-double of the season with 20 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. All three of those double-doubles occurred in an eight-game stretch.

Hadley went 6-for-6 on free throws during Saturday's win at Oregon State, finishing 4-for-8 overall with 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists and no turnovers in 38-plus minutes.

In the two games combined, Hadley went 12-for-19 overall, 5-for-6 on 3-pointers, and 6-for-6 on free throws. In the past six games, Hadley has shot .625 overall (35-for-56) while going 7-for-11 on 3-pointers.

With his recent surge, Hadley has improved his season shooting marks to .568 overall, .500 on 3-pointers (18-for-36) and .836 at the free throw line.
