University of Arizona senior forward Tatum Brown has been named the Pacific-10 Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week for Nov. 29-Dec. 5.

Brown, from Tacoma, Wash., scored a career-high 21 points and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds to lead No. 21 Arizona to an 86-76 upset over No. 15 UC Santa Barbara last week. In just 26 minutes of action, she shot 9-for-12 (.750) from the field and 3-for-4 (.750) from the line.

Arizona remains one of only 20 undefeated teams in the nation, with a 5-0 record. After the win over UCSB, the Wildcats moved up to No. 19 in this week's AP poll.

The Player of the Week honor is the first of Brown's career, and the 17th all-time selection. Brown's honor follows Elizabeth Pickney's Player of the Week laurels last week, marking the first time in school history that the Wildcats have had back-to-back Pac-10 Players of the Week.
