Dec. 10, 2007
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State junior center Kirsten Thompson was named the Pac-10 Women's Basketball Player of the Week according to an announcement by Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen on Monday.
In ASU's 77-56 win over UC Davis on Sunday Thompson was perfect from the floor, connecting on all seven of her shot attempts and both free throws to lead the Sun Devils with a season-high 16 points, which fell three short of her career best. Thompson, who also added five rebounds and three assists while playing a season-high 19 minutes, scored 10 of her 16 points in the first half in helping the Sun Devils build a 34-17 halftime lead.
Thompson currently leads the Sun Devils and is third in the Pac-10 in field goal percentage (.600).
Currently ranked No. 18 in the country by the Associated Press, the Sun Devils resume play on Thursday (7 pm. CT/6 p.m. MT) when they travel to Lubbock, Texas, to take on the Texas Tech Lady Raiders.
