USC junior point guard Jordan McLaughlin was named the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for Dec. 19-25.
It was the first conference weekly honor for McLaughlin and first by a Trojan since Elijah Stewart took home the award on Dec. 22, 2014.
McLaughlin, an Etiwanda High School graduate, averaged 19 points, 6.3 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals in three wins last week. He helped lead the Trojans to the Las Vegas Classic title by capping off his 22-point finals performance with a game-winning layup with 4.5 seconds remaining in overtime of a 94-92 win over Wyoming on Dec. 23.
In the 83-75 semifinal victory over Missouri State on Dec. 22, McLaughlin scored 19 points and had five assists.
He began the week by scoring 16 points and dishing out nine assists in a 79-67 win vs. Cornell on Dec. 19. McLaughlin was named the MVP of the Las Vegas Classic, and during the week also averaged 39.0 minutes per game, was 11-for-11 from the free throw line and posted a 4.8 assist to turnover ratio (19-4).
McLaughlin concluded nonconference play ranked second in the Pac-12 in minutes played (34.2 mgp), and assist to turnover ratio (2.8), third in assists (5.2 apg) and 14th in scoring (14.7 ppg).
He has guided USC to a 13-0 record and a No. 22 ranking, as one of six undefeated team remaining in Division I men’s basketball.
Upland baseball standout Drew Cowley has committed to Cal Poly Pomona.
The school has a good baseball program and it’s close to home which were both big factors in that decision. He also plans to major in engineering, another factor that led him to make the decision.
“I’m close to my family and they’ll be able to come to my games,” Cowley said. “It just was the right fit. All the pieces of the puzzle came together.”
Cowley, a first-team All-Baseline League selection last spring, also visited Cal and was considering a handful of other schools including UC Santa Barbara.
He was invited to a summer showcase at Cal Poly Pomona and the Broncos heavily pursued him after that.
“I am going to go there and work hard and maybe I can get some playing time as a freshman,” he said.
