The Media Agrees

STANFORD, Calif. - Cameron Brink was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year by the league's media, joined on the All-Pac-12 team by teammate Haley Jones.

Started in 2010, the Pac-12 media awards are in addition to the Conference awards, which are voted on by the league's coaches and were announced on Tuesday.Regarded as one of the top defensive players in the nation, this is also Cameron Brink's second appearance on the All-Pac-12 team and All-Defensive team, in addition to her superlative award. The nation's second-leading shot blocker, Brink totaled 109 blocks in the regular season, averaging 3.52 per game, both single-season program records. Her 109 blocks this season currently rank seventh in Pac-12 history and are the most for any player outside the state of Oregon. Brink's recently broke the Stanford record for career blocks and her 288 career swats rank fourth in Pac-12 history. Also averaging 14.5 points and 9.4 rebounds, Brink is one of two players in the country averaging more than 14 points, nine rebounds and three blocks this season (Taiyanna Jackson - Kansas), something that has not been done in the Pac-12 in records dating back to 1999-2000. She became the first player in program history and second in Pac-12 history to record a triple-double with points, rebounds and blocks, doing so Jan. 29 against Oregon. She leads the Cardinal in scoring, rebounding, blocks and made free throws. 

Just one of 16 Stanford players to be named to the All-Pac-12 Team three different times, Haley Jones has continued to solidify her status as one of the most versatile players in the nation. She ranks second on the team in scoring and rebounding, leading the Cardinal in assists and steals. She recently became the first player in program history (and Pac-12 history dating back to at least 1999-00) to own over 1,400 points, 800 rebounds, 350 assists and 100 blocks in her career. Jones currently ranks 19th in the Stanford record books for career scoring, nearly 1,500 points, and will soon enter the top-10 for career rebounding. She's featured 21 double-digit scoring efforts this season, along with 11 double-doubles, and has led the team in scoring 10 times. At times playing every position, 1-5, Jones is the only player in the nation averaging at least 13 points, 8.9 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. 

Stanford begins the Pac-12 Tournament in the quarterfinals, set to face the winner of No. 8 Washington and No. 9 Oregon on Thursday, March 2 at 2:30 p.m.
