Spokane, Wash. - Gonzaga women's basketball player Michelle Elliott has been named the West Coast Conference player for the week as announced by the conference office Monday, Nov. 28.
Elliott continued to lead the Zags last week, as the junior propelled GU to a 2-2 mark including an upset victory over then-No. 19 ranked UCLA at the Rainbow Wahine Classic. The transfer from San Diego State scored nine points with seven boards in a victory over Portland State on Tuesday before dropping in 20 points with four rebounds and three assists in the win over the Bruins. After a 10 point, five assist effort against No. 2 ranked North Carolina, the junior racked up 19 points with three steals against host Hawai'i on Sunday. For her efforts, Elliot was also named to the all-tournament team.
The Bulldogs return to the court Thursday when they host Seattle Pacific University at 8 p.m. at the McCarthey Athletic Center.
