SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Santa Clara University senior guard Danny Pariseau is this week's WCC Player of the Week for his performance in leading the Broncos to road wins at Portland and at Gonzaga. The two wins catapulted the Broncos into first place in the conference standings, while the win at Gonzaga snapped the Bulldogs' NCAA-leading 50 game home court winning streak.
Pariseau was instrumental in guiding the Broncos to their wins over the Pilots and the Bulldogs, averaging 14.0 points per game, while handing out 5.5 assists per game. The 5-10 guard was extremely efficient, connecting on 66.7 percent of his shots from the field (10-for-15), including 57.1 percent from beyond the arc, while committing just three turnovers in 59 minutes of action.
Pariseau opened the week by scoring 14 points and handing out five assists in Santa Clara's 76-53 win at Portland. He connected on 6-of-9 from the floor, including 2-for-4 from the three-point line, and added two steals.
The Spokane, WA native enjoyed an outstanding homecoming in the Broncos' 84-73 win at Gonzaga, tossing in 14 points and distributing six assists. Pariseau made big play after big play for the Broncos to thwart Gonzaga's furious second half comeback. The transfer from Eastern Washington scored seven of his 14 points in the final six minutes of the game and assisted on two crucial baskets, including setting up Scott Dougherty's three-pointer that pushed the Broncos' lead to double digits with two minutes remaining.
The weekly honor is the first WCC Player of the Week award for Pariseau and the second by a Santa Clara player this season.
