Josh Hawkinson, 2013 Shorewood graduate, son of Nels and Nancy Hawkinson of Richmond Beach, was named a Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week by media who cover the college circuit.

According to the Pac-12 News, Hawkinson, a 6' 10" forward for Washington State, recorded double-doubles against No. 3 Oklahoma (16 pts, 8-15 FG, 10 reb, 4 stls), Northern Iowa (14 pts, 6-9 FG, 13 reb) and New Mexico (19 pts, 8-15 FG, 10 reb, 4 asts) to average 16.3 points on 56 percent shooting (22-39) and 11.0 rebounds at the Diamond Head Classic.

One of the Pac-12’s national-best four Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award nominees, Hawkinson leads the conference and is sixth in the country with nine double-doubles so far this season, including one in each of WSU’s last seven games, and now has 29 double-doubles in his last 41 outings. He is one of three Pac-12 players averaging a double-double, leading the conference in rebounding (10.5 rpg) while ranking seventh in the league in both scoring (16.5 ppg) and field goal percentage (.598).
