Jan. 22, 2001
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- ARIZONA STATE guard Amanda Levens has been named the Pac-10 Women's Basketball Player of the Week for Jan. 15-21, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Levens, from Belvidere, Ill., averaged 15.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists in leading Arizona State to its first ever road sweep over the Los Angeles schools and its first Pac-10 road sweep since 1992-93. On the weekend, Levens shot 40.0 percent from three-point range (4-10) and was a perfect 12-for-12 from the free throw line.
Against USC, Levens notched a team-high 15 points and recorded a game-high four assists. She matched her scoring effort with 15 points at UCLA, adding a career-high seven rebounds in a career-best 34 minutes of play. Levens has hit 10 of her last 20 attempts from three-point land and already ranks 10th on ASU's single-season chart with 30 treys this year.
Arizona State has won three straight, including four of its last five games, and owns a 4-2 record (12-6 overall) heading into the fourth week of Pac-10 play.
The Player of the Week honor is the first of Levens' career and the 19th all-time selection for Arizona State.
