Pac-12 Release

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- The Pac-12 Conference office announced today the Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Players of the Week for the week of Feb. 3-9. The Dawgs Kelsey Plum was tabbed the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week for the fifth time this season, while Reshanda Gray of Califonia was named Player of the Week.

The second-highest scoring freshman in the country, Plum averaged 19.5 points and 5.5 assists per game on the week, tallying 23 points in a stunning 87-82 upset of then-No. 3 Stanford on Sunday. The freshman scored 15 points, knocking down 3-of-3 threes in the first half, as the Huskies ran out to a 41-34 lead. The win snapped the Cardinal’s 62-straight Conference road win streak. It also marked the highest-ranked team the Huskies have beaten since 1990 and only the second time in the history of the program UW had beaten a top-three team.

In the 70-65 loss to then-No. 23 Cal on Friday, Plum scored 16 points and had a career-best nine assists as UW went to the wire with the Bears. Plum finished with 39 points and 11 assists, while shooting 5-12 from 3-point range and 8-8 from the foul line this week.

Plum is earning the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honor for the fifth time this season. She is currently fourth in the Pac-12, scoring 19.7 points per game and has upped that to 21.1 in conference play.

Washington evened their conference record at 6-6 with Sunday's upset of Stanford and will now head out on the road to face Colorado and Utah this weekend.
