TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State freshman guard Jill Noe has been named the Pac-10 Women's Basketball Player of the Week for Dec. 9-15, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Noe, from Tualatin, Ore., came within one rebound and one assist of recording the 13th triple-double in Pac-10 history in ASU's 76-53 defeat of Denver on Dec. 9. Noe finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and nine assists, adding six steals in 26 minutes of play. She shot 7-of-11 (.636) from the field, including a 75.0 percent clip (3-of-4) from 3-point range. Noe also recorded two blocked shots and committed no turnovers as the Sun Devils posted their 14th win in their last 15 games at Wells Fargo Arena.
One of three freshmen comprising Arizona State's top three scorers and rebounders this season, Noe has scored in double figures six times in seven games. She paces the defending Pac-10 Tournament Champions in scoring (14.4 ppg), rebounding (5.9 rpg), 3-point field goal percentage (.464), free throw percentage (.857) and steals (19).
Following an eight-day break for final examinations, Arizona State (6-1 overall) takes its first road trip of the season this week, with games at Kent State (Dec. 18) and Akron (Dec. 20).
The Player of the Week honor is the first of Noe's career and the 22nd all-time selection for Arizona State.
