SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Three WCC student-athletes were honored with WCC Player of the Week honors.

Mills followed that performance with an 11-point, five-assist effort in the Gaels' 84-63 win over Nicholls State. For the week, Mills averaged 24.0 ppg and 5.0 apg, while shooting 50 percent from the field.

The Spokane, WA native then scored a game-high 17 points and grabbed a team-best eight rebounds in the Zags' win over Marquette. She finished the week with a game-high 23 points and seven rebounds at Portland State. For the week, Bowman averaged 21.7 ppg and 8.7 rpg, while shooting .519 from the floor.

San Francisco senior forward Dominique Carter nearly averaged a double-double in leading the Dons to a 2-1 record last week. Carter scored a game-high 24 points on 11-for-16 shooting and collected 10 rebounds in the Dons' win over Cal State Fullerton.
