BOSTON (MA) -- Stanford's Chasson Randle earns Lute Olson award
national player of the week honors.
The 6-foot-2 senior came up big last week, helping the Cardinal
to a pair of wins. Last Wednesday Randle had 25 points, three
rebounds and three assists in a road win over rival Cal. He
followed up that performance with 23 points, five assists and
four steals against defending National Champion UConn.
The Lute Olson Award is presented annually to the nation's top
Division I player who has played at least two seasons with his
respective team. Freshmen and first-year transfers can be named
to the All-America team, but are not eligible to receive the
Player of the Year honors.
The award is named in honor of coaching great Lute Olson, who
won 780 games in 34 seasons, 24 of which were spent at the
University of Arizona. During that stretch he led the Wildcats
to 11 Pac-10 Conference titles, 23 consecutive NCAA Tournaments,
four Final Four appearances and a National Championship in 1997.
