Pac-10 Women's Basketball Chat (3/7/01)
March 5, 2001
Arizona senior guard Reshea Bristol will participate in an on-line chat Wednesday, Mar. 7 at 12 p.m. MT. The chat will be featured on the Pacific-10 Conference's official website, www.pac-10.org.
Bristol, from Omaha, Neb., is finishing her collegiate career at Arizona in style. She leads the Wildcats in assists (211) and steals (81) and is second on the team in points (432/15.4 ppg), free throws made (110) and three-point field goals made (42). Her name dots the standings in several of the Conference's statistical categories. Bristol paces the Pac-10 in assists, is ranked No. 2 in steals and is No. 5 in both scoring and assist-to-turnover ratio (1.31).
With her 211 assists on the season, Bristol has moved into the seventh-place slot on the Pac-10's all-time single-season list. She is just 10 steals shy of tying for No. 10 on the list. In the Arizona all-time record books she is currently in the No. 2 spot for steals and needs only 12 more to surpass former teammate Adia Barnes (256 steals) as the career leader. With 81 thefts this season, she is also only six away from setting a new school record. Bristol's 1,194 points puts her only five points away from reaching No. 5 on the career list.
A two-time Pac-10 Player of the Week selection this year, Bristol has had several exciting games, including a 30-point effort against California Feb. 4. She has notched seven points/assists double-doubles on the season and barely missed a triple-double when she had 25 points, nine assists and a career-high nine rebounds against UCLA Feb. 15. Bristol tied the school record for single-game assists when she turned in a 16 assist performance against Washington Jan. 13.
Bristol's career honors include three Pac-10 Player of the Week accolades, All-Pac-10 honorable mention (2000), Arizona Defensive Most Valuable Player (1999 & 2000), Arizona Newcomer of the Year (1998) and Pac-10 All-Freshman Team (1998).
Bristol is majoring in sociology, with a minor in special education and rehabilitation.
