EUGENE, Ore. - The Ducks' two wins over the Washington schools wasn't Oregon's only sweep this weekend, as Jillian Alleyne and Chrishae Rowe swept the Pac-12 weekly awards as well, the conference announced on Monday.

Alleyne was named Pac-12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the first time this season while Rowe took home her fifth Pac-12 Freshman of the Week award.

Since the league added the Freshman of the Week award prior to last season, this is the first time the Ducks have swept both honors.

Alleyne's Player of the Week award is the Ducks' first since Amanda Johnson claimed the award on Nov. 21, 2011.

Alleyne, who entered the weekend leading the nation with 14.7 rebounds per game and 15 and double-doubles, bettered both numbers against the Cougars and Huskies. The sophomore forward went off for 21 points, 19 rebounds and four blocks against Washington State in an 82-66 win on Friday before posted a dominating 34 points and 25 rebounds with a career-high five assists and three more blocks in Sunday's 101-85 win over Washington. Alleyne is now leading the nation, averaging 15.5 rebounds per game with 17 double-doubles. She is tied for second in the Pac-12, averaging 21.4 points per game.

Rowe averaged 20.5 points and seven rebounds per game in the Ducks' two wins. Despite shooting troubles from three-point range, Rowe chipped in elsewhere, dishing out six assists and making four steals over the weekend. Rowe is tied with Alleyne for second in the Pac-12, averaging 21.4 points per game. She is the highest scoring freshman in the nation.

Oregon visits the Arizona schools this weekend, with the Wildcats up first on Friday at 6 p.m. PT.
