Brynn Cameron Named Pac-10 Player of the Week
Jan. 5, 2009
USC senior guard Brynn Cameron made it four double-figure efforts in the past five games with two solid performances in USC wins this weekend. For her powerful outings in the Trojans' Pac-10 openers, Cameron has earned her first career honor as the Pac-10 Player of the Week.
Cameron knocked down seven 3-pointers total and averaged 16.5 points and 2.0 steals per game to open Pac-10 play. Against Oregon, she remained perfect from the free-throw line by going 2-for-2 while hitting three 3-pointers to finish as USC's second leading scorer in a defensive 68-58 win over the Ducks at the Galen Center. Against Oregon State, Cameron had set a new season high by halftime, going 7-of-8 from the floor (4-of-5 from 3-point range) to hold 18 points after the first half. She would finish with a career-high 20 points and grabbed another season-high three steals to lead the Trojans to a 78-54 win over the Beavers.
Cameron now has hit double digits in three straight games for the Trojans and has hit 14 threes in the past five games to now average 8.8 points per game. She is 17-of-18 (.944) from the free-throw line on the year.
Now 8-5 overall and 2-0 in Pac-10 play, USC turns to face crosstown rival UCLA in a 2:30 p.m. match on Sunday (Jan. 11) at Pauley Pavilion.
