Utah’s Boclair Selected Freshman of the Week
SAN FRANCISCO - OREGON’s Jillian Alleyne was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week, while UTAH’s Tanaeya Boclair was tabbed the Freshman of the Week, as announced by the Conference on Monday.
Junior forward Jillian Alleyne (Fontana, Calif.) powered Oregon to a 67-65 win over UCLA. Alleyne scored 30 points and grabbed 25 rebounds while scoring the game-winning basket with 1.8 seconds left to give the Ducks the win. Alleyne scored all 10 of the Ducks’ points in the game’s last four minutes. Her 25 rebounds were the third most in Oregon single-game history. She holds the record with 27. Alleyne ranks second in the nation in rebounding, averaging 15.3 rpg.
Utah forward Tanaeya Boclair averaged 15.5 points per game for the Utes in games against Arizona and No. 11 Arizona State last week. Boclair scored a career-high 16 to lead Utah to a 62-48 victory over Arizona after shooting 7-of-13 from the field and grabbing seven rebounds. In the 48-58 loss to the Sun Devils, Boclair scored a game-high 15 points while also notching four rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block.
A player of the week has been selected every week since 1986-87, the first year the Conference sponsored women’s sports. A freshman of the week was first selected in 2012-13.
Oregon will host USC tonight at 5 p.m. PT, while Utah plays its next game on Friday at USC at 7 p.m. PT. Both games will appear on Pac-12 Networks.
