PAC-12 Release:

San Francisco, Calif. – Charisma Osborne earned the first Pac-12 Player of the Week honor of the 2020-21 season, the Conference office announced Monday. It's the first-career Pac-12 weekly honor for Osborne and the 62nd all-time for UCLA.

Osborne had a dominant game in UCLA's opening-night victory over Cal State Fullerton (Nov. 27). The sophomore scored 31 points on 9-for-16 shooting and added a career-high six assists in the win over the Titans. She also went a perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line. It was Osborne's second 30+ performance in her young career, as she notched 32 points in the Bruins' win at Washington State (Feb. 21) last season, a performance that earned her Pac-12 Freshman of the Week accolades. She knocked down four three-pointers on the night, tied for the second-most she's hit in a game in her career. Osborne also added four rebounds, including a pair of offensive boards.

Osborne entered her sophomore campaign coming off a debut season that saw her notch Pac-12 All-Freshman team honors. She averaged 12.2 points per game and set a UCLA freshman record with 59 made three-pointers. Ahead of the 2020-21 season, she was named to the preseason watch list for the Ann Meyers Drysdale Award, the award presented annually to the nation's top shooting guard.
