SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has named its Women's Basketball Player of the Week for February 17, 2014.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK - HAZEL RAMIREZ, SR., G, LOYOLA MARYMOUNT
Hazel Ramirez averaged 16.5 points, 11.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game to lead the Lions to a home split in West Coast Conference play. The senior point guard had 17 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds as the Lions came from behind to claim a 76-74 overtime victory over Saint Mary's Thursday.
She was instrumental in the Lions' win, including draining the game-tying three with five seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime. Her double-double performance was her fourth of the season. Two days later, Ramirez eclipsed the LMU single-season record for assists, came one shy of breaking her own school record for single-game assists and finished two shy of owning the LMU all-time assist mark.
Against the Pacific Tigers, Ramirez finished with 16 points and 12 assists in the 102-95 setback. She tallied her sixth assist of the game on a Mackenzie Kerins' bucket, good for her 148th of the season. She would go on to break Kristen Bruich's single-season record (148) set in 1988-89 with her seventh assist - a dish to Kerins at the 5:23 mark of the first half. Ramirez matched her own career-high, and the LMU single-game record, with 12 assists. The senior point guard now has 440 for her career, one shy of the LMU all-time record held by Marlee Webb (1993-96).
Also nominated: Lexi Eaton, BYU; Amy Kame, San Diego; Madison Parrish, Pacific; Montana Walters, Santa Clara
