WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - USC sophomore guard Camille LeNoir has been named the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Women's Basketball Player of the Week for Jan. 16-22, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
The Los Angeles, Calif., native scored a career-high 27 points to power USC past cross-town rival UCLA on Saturday. She scored 22 of her 27 points in the second half, hitting 11-of-12 from the free-throw line and matching her career-best assists mark with seven. LeNoir scored the final seven points for USC from the free-throw line in the 73-70 win.
A 2004-05 Pac-10 All-Freshman honorable mention selection, LeNoir finished as the team's second leading scorer at 8.7 points per game and second in assists with 3.23 per game, a mark that was good for seventh in the Pac-10. Her 1.08 assist/turnover ratio also put her at ninth in the Pac-10.
USC (13-5, 7-2), winners of five straight, will host California and Stanford this weekend at the Lyon Center in Los Angeles.
