Hawaii basketball senior forward Christian Standhardinger was named Big West Player of the Week for the second time this season after helping the Rainbow Warriors to a pair of road victories on Thursday and Saturday.
Standhardinger averaged 18.5 points and 11 rebounds as UH (18-7, 7-4 Big West) extended its streak of road victories to four, a new program record in conference games.
He had 27 points and 13 rebounds, his eighth double-double of the season, in UH's 87-76 win at UC Riverside on Thursday. He was quieter in an 83-80 thriller at Cal State Fullerton on Saturday, but still managed to collect 10 points and nine rebounds.
Standhardinger, who needs 57 points to become the program's 16th 1,000-point scorer, now has four career weekly Big West awards in two seasons. A total of four have gone out to UH players this season -- Brandon Spearman and Keith Shamburger received one apiece.
UH hosts league leader UC Irvine (17-9, 8-2) on Thursday in a key matchup.
