SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for February 5, 2018.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – YASMINE ROBINSON-BACOTE, JR., F - PEPPERDINE
Yasmine Robinson-Bacote scored 31 points in both games over the week, first in a home win against Portland and then on the road at Pacific. She finished the week with two game-averages of 31.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 assists per game while shooting 61.1% from the field – including making both her three-point attempts.
These were the second and third 30-point games of Robinson-Bacote’s career, following her career-high of 34 points set earlier this season. Her 31-point, 10-rebound effort against Portland was her eighth double-double of the season. With the game tied at 77 with under a minute to play, her jumper put the Waves ahead to stay in an 83-79 victory. She followed that with 31 points and eight rebounds at Pacific on Saturday, both game highs.
