Feb. 12, 2018


SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for February 12, 2018.
 
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – MEGAN MCKAY, JR., F – SAINT MARY’S
Megan McKay posted back-to-back double-doubles in two games versus two of the WCC's top-four teams while also inching ever closer to the 1,000 career points mark to earn her second Player of the Week nod this season. The junior forward also continued her reign as the WCC's top shooter, shooting an impressive .833 percent for the week on 15-of-18 shooting.

Saturday McKay helped the Gaels dominate WCC leader Gonzaga on its own home floor, scoring 14 points with only one missed shot (7-for-8) while grabbing a game-high 11 rebounds as the Gaels handed the Bulldogs their first WCC loss of the year and snapped their 15-game winning streak. McKay scored a game-high 19 points and grabbed a game-best 11 rebounds - including six offensive boards - Thursday versus Loyola Marymount. She shot 80 percent (8-for-10) against the Lions.

McKay also had two assists, a block and a steal while shooting 75.0 percent from the free-throw line during the week. She is now only 47 points away from the 1,000 career points mark. Her two double-doubles during the week made it three in a row dating to Feb. 3.

Also Nominated: Brenna Chase, BYU; Raychel Stanley, Loyola Marymount; GeAnna Luaulu-Summers, Pacific; Paige Fecske, Pepperdine; Aubrey Ward-El, San Diego; Michaela Rakova, San Francisco
