Player of the Week

Rondae Hollis Jefferson - Arizona

Rondae Hollis-JeffersonRondae Hollis-JeffersonI have not been very nice to Hollis-Jefferson this year, but frankly this week it isn't close as far as choosing player of the week. The sophomore forward showed his potential in three games this week, all Wildcat wins, and all Wildcat blowouts. Hollis-Jefferson was his usual energetic self, but he really filled up the box score this week. The Wildcat averaged 15 points and 8 boards for the week. The sophomore also killed it defensively, getting two blocks and four steals. As good of a week Hollis-Jefferson has had, I still have my reservations about him. The sophomore is still inconsistent with the ball, turns it over too much and he still cannot hit the broad side of a barn in terms of his jumpshot. But Hollis-Jefferson will be a great energy guy with a defense first attitude and weeks like this show why he can really be fun to watch.

Who’s Hot

Savon Goodman - Arizona St.

I’m not so sure what has gotten into Goodman lately, but he has been rebounding like a madman. The sophomore forward averaged 13 rebounds per game this week, after only averaging seven on the year. The Sun Devils went 2-1, beating UCLA and Washington during that stretch. Goodman isn't great at stretching the floor, but he has been lighting it from the field lately. The Sun Devil forward shot an absurd 75 percent from the field averaging 15.5 points. Goodman is much too small to play power forward in the NBA but he can still get after it in college. We will see if Goodman can turn into the Kenneth Faried of the Pac-12 and make a name for himself heading into the draft.

Who’s Cold

Bryce Alford - UCLA

The bad Bryce Alford returned this week as the Bruins lost to Arizona St. Alford struggled from the field shooting 2-10 against Oregon and 4-14 from the field against the Sun Devils. The guard’s assist to turnover ratio is okay this season, two to one, but he was bad protecting the ball this week. Alford turned the ball over six times and only had nine assists. Alford is tasked with being the main playmaker for the Bruins as Norman Powell is more of a scorer. Alford is UCLA’s best option for distributing the ball sadly. The Bruins are on the NCAAT bubble at the moment and this week’s defeat to Arizona State certainly doesn't help. UCLA is going to have to get going, and Alford is going to have to distribute the ball better moving forward if the Bruins have any shot at playing meaningful March basketball.

Askia Booker - Colorado

Volume scorer can describe a ton of different players and mean different things. Players who get a ton of shots will eventually get their points, it’s just the law of averages. Booker is fun to watch, but the point totals don't tell the whole story. The senior guard shot 5-17 against Oregon and 5-16 against Stanford. Booker might be one of the only options to score for the Buffalos, but you aren't going to win many games with your leading scorer shooting 30 percent. It’s tough to watch players chuck and miss shots but Booker should realize when he just doesn't have it going. Here's to watching volume scorers taking less shots and dishing the ball.

The NBA trade deadline was insane this year. A lot of players changed teams which, in turn, impacted the playoff picture. In honor of one of my favorite days of the year, here is my Top 5 list of fantasy trades to improve teams in the Pac-12.

Top 5 Pac-12 Trades

1. Rondae Hollis Jefferson to Oregon, Joseph Young to Arizona

Arizona is an awesome team and is a threat to make the final four, but could you imagine the Wildcats with another scorer? Young would be that threat for Arizona. The senior guard would provide much needed spacing and might hurt their defense, but the possible offensive gains is too much to turn down. The Ducks would gain an energy player that can run the floor like they love to do. Oregon might lost a shooter, but Hollis-Jefferson would be a bull in the paint the entire game, especially with the opposing team having to guard the three point line. This would be a really fun deal and could help both teams in making the NCAA tournament.

2. Josh Hawkinson to UCLA, Tony Parker to Washington St.

Parker would help Washington St. on the defensive side of the ball a tremendous amount. The Cougars have been terrible on defense all year and Hawkinson is part of the problem. With this trade, UCLA would completely embrace what they should really be, a run and gun team that just outscores opponents. Kevon Looney and Hawkinson would rebound everything in sight and would be able to score against any front court in the NCAA. Like the move for both teams, even though it might seem to help the Bruins out more.

3. Jakob Poeltl to Washington, Nigel Williams Goss to Utah

This may seem like a complete wash for Utah, but when you think of it, it makes sense for both teams. Utah needs someone else to help the offense, Williams-Goss definitely provides that. In Delon Wright and Williams-Goss Utah might have the most dominate back court in the nation, giving them the chance to contend for the NCAA title. This is obviously much harder to understand on Washington’s side, but just hear me out. This is a lost year for the Huskies. Poeltl has the chance to be a dominate big man in college basketball (this is assuming he would spurn the NBA and come back next year). If Poeltl comes back, Washington could have a dominate front court next year and would have the chance to surprise many people if they recruit a four star guard. Seattle is known for producing great guards, with a freshman standout and Poeltl, the Huskies could be right back to the top of the Pac-12 standings.

4. Gary Payton II to Stanford, Chasson Randle to Oregon St.

Now, Payton II does everything for the Beavers, he rebounds and passes but he struggles to score at times. Randle may struggle to score when his shot is off, but he would help the Beaver’s offense tremendously. The Cardinal guard would be able to shoot whenever he wants, and maybe Oregon St. could win some games with offense, not just defense. If Stanford acquires Payton II, they would be a defensive juggernaut. I really believe the offense would move smoother and Payton II would work hard to get everyone the ball. Stefan Nastic and Anthony Brown would become even bigger parts of the offense and the Cardinals attack would just look more balanced. Love this trade for both teams.

5. Bryce Alford to California Jabari Bird to UCLA

Okay the second trade for UCLA, mainly if they want to play defense. Bird is a lengthy athlete with three point range and would give the Bruins an incredibly imposing front court. Alford may be their point guard, but Norman Powell could move more into a facilitator role and take over at the end of the game. California is in need of a point guard. As much as I hated on Alford this week, he can still hit threes and is a really good passer. [player:Tyron Wallace} could move into a scoring role, something he is really meant to do in the first place, and the team would just make more sense. Obviously, trading your son would probably make Thanksgiving dinners really awkward, this would just be a really fun parallel universe to think about.
