Jan. 7, 2008

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Junior center Amber Sprague of the University of San Diego women's basketball team was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week, it was announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.

Sprague, a 6-5 junior from San Diego, helped pace the Toreros to a 89-83 overtime win over UC Irvine this past Sunday, as she poured in a game-high 28 points and recorded a career-high six blocks. With her 28 points, she has now moved her career-point total to 999, just one point shy of becoming the 10th player in the history of the program to reach 1,000 career points. On the season, Sprague leads the team in scoring with a 17.4 points per game average to go along with a team-best 7.7 rebounds per game average.

Sprague and the Toreros will return to action on Saturday as they open WCC play at the University of San Francisco in a 2 p.m. game.
