OSU’s Tres Tinkle named Pac-12 Player of the Week

@1029TheGame

Following two massive victories on the road, Oregon State forward Tres Tinkle has been named the Pac-12 Player of the Week.

Tinkle, a senior and son of head coach Wayne Tinkle, scored 31 points on Saturday Feb. 2nd in a 81-72 win at Utah.  That came on the heels of his 19-point, 8-rebound performance the previous Thursday to lead the Beavers over Colorado, 76-74.

It is Tinkle’s third time earning conference Player of the Week honors.

The Beavers are 6-3 in Pac-12 play, currently tied for second in the conference standings with Arizona State and USC, and behind leader Washington (9-0).

More from the Oregon State press release:

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State forward Tres Tinkle was named the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

 

It’s the third time Tinkle has earned the honor. He was first named Pac-12 Player of the Week on Nov. 14, 2016 and again last season on Feb. 12, 2018.

 

This is the second time this season an Oregon State player has been selected the Pac-12 Player of the Week, as Stephen Thompson Jr. got the recognition on Jan. 14.

 

Tinkle led the Beavers to their first Pac-12 road sweep in 10 years, while averaging 25.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists in wins over Colorado and Utah. He shot 53.1 percent (17-for-32) from the field, 44.4 percent (4-for-9) from beyond the arc and 80.0 percent (12-for-15) from the free throw line.

 

Against the Buffaloes, he had 19 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in a 76-74 victory in Boulder.

 

Against the Utes, Tinkle had 31 points (one shy of his career high), six rebounds, four assists and two blocks in an 81-72 win in Salt Lake City. He also made a deep 3-pointer with 1:34 left in the game to hold off a late Utah rally.

 

The Beavers are 14-7 overall and tied for second in Pac-12 play at 6-3, equaling their best conference record through nine games since 1989-90 (the 1992-93 team also started 6-3).

 

This is the 50th time an Oregon State player has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week (A.C. Green and Charlie Sitton shared it on March 12, 1984).
