SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's basketball starting point guard, Amanda Rego, has been named the West Coast Conference's Player of the Month for December.
Rego helped San Diego continue its best start in program history, as the Toreros went 5-3 during the month of December to improve to 10-3 on season. Rego did a little bit of everything for USD, setting conference-highs with 6.88 assists per game and 3.5 steals per contests. The junior also averaged 8.4 points per game for the Toreros, and pulled down 7.0 boards per game to rank sixth in the league. The San Diego native had an impressive performance in a win over Holy Cross on December 28, dishing out 13 assists and collecting a program-record 10 steals, just one point short of a triple double with nine points. Rego also notched a double-double in a win over Cal State Bakersfield, scoring 10 points and dishing out 11 assists on December 12.
Rego and the Toreros will begin WCC play this weekend as they host the University of San Francisco in a 2 p.m. game on Sunday inside the Friendly confines of the Jenny Craig Pavilion.
