Oregon’s Jackson Shelstad named Pac-12 Freshman of the Week

While the Oregon Ducks may need a miracle run through the Pac-12 Tournament this week in order to avoid a third-straight trip to the NIT Tournament, there’s no arguing that one of their freshman stars has been a massive success so far this season.

Oregon’s Jackson Shelstad was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week for the final stretch of the regular season.

Shelstad scored a career-high 23 points against Colorado on March 7, connecting on 10-of-15 field goal attempts, with six assists. He closed the weekend with his fourth consecutive double-digit outing, scoring 12 points in the regular-season finale win vs. Utah.

In his freshman season, Shelstad is averaging 12.7 points, 3.0 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 31.9 minutes per game. He has started the last 25 games and scored in double-figures 19 times, including four 20-point games.

Shelstad is Oregon’s first Pac-12 Freshman of the Week since the award’s debut in 2019-20.
