Wilkes had 27 points (9-15 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and 10 rebounds across 41 minutes in Wednesday's 75-67 overtime victory over California.
It may have been one of the weakest defenses Wilkes will see all year, and surely the worst among Pac-12 opponents, but it's still noteworthy that Wilkes was able to record his first double-double since the season opener on Nov. 6. It was also his highest scoring total since the Nov. 6 showdown against Purdue Fort Wayne. Wilkes continues to be the focal point of the 13-12 Bruins, attempting double-digit shots in every game this season. Following his sophomore season, it's unclear if Wilkes will be willing to stick around for another coaching change in the program, especially after the sophomore originally put his name in for NBA Draft consideration last year.
