Davis Named Student-Athlete Of The Week
Jan. 9, 2012
SEATTLE - Women's basketball freshman Jazmine Davis has been named the GoHuskies.com Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 2-8, 2012.
The guard from San Jose, Calif., helped UW hand Colorado its first loss of the season at Alaska Airlines Arena on Thursday.
Davis had an explosive night, setting the tone offensively with a career-best 27 points to lead all scorers. Her output was tied for seventh best in UW history by a freshman, matching Loree Payne's total against Arizona in 2000. Her all around performance included a pair of 3-pointers, a spinning layup that brought the crowd out of its seat and a go-go tempo pushing the ball up the court. Twenty one of those points came in the second half, propelling the Huskies past their toughest opponent to date.
On Saturday, the Huskies lost a heartbreaker in overtime to Utah but Davis was once again the leading scorer with 15 points in the game.
Other nominees include: Ruby Engreitz (gymnastics) and Terrance Rose (men's basketball).
