Teder Named Pac-12 Player of the Week

Feb 21, 2022

SAN FRANCISCO – The Pac-12 Conference named Washington State women's basketball junior Johanna Teder the Pac-12 Player of the Week Monday, Feb. 21, for the week ending on Feb. 20. It is the first time in her career that she has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week.

The 5-8 guard from Tartu, Estonia averaged 20.5 points, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game last week to help Washington State pick up wins over Arizona State and No. 8/7 Arizona. Teder shot a blistering 58.3 percent from the field last weekend, as she connected on 14 of her 24 attempts from the field. The guard was even better from behind the arc, as she hit a scorching-hot 64.3 percent on 3-point field goals. Teder hit a total of nine 3-point field goals in the pair of wins over the Sun Devils and Wildcats.

Teder got her week started with a 20-point performance in the 65-58 win over Arizona State Friday, Feb. 18, to snap WSU's 11-game losing streak to the Sun Devils. Teder hit four 3-pointers against ASU and picked up a season-high four steals along the way.

The guard came up big for the Cougars in their biggest win of the season to date over No. 8/7 Arizona this past Sunday, Feb. 20. Teder scored a game-high 21 points to help Washington State pick up its first win over a ranked opponent this season, as the Cougs collected a 72-67 victory over the No. 8/7 Wildcats on Senior Day at Beasley Coliseum. The guard hit five 3-point field goals in the win over Arizona. Her personal 7-0 run midway through the fourth quarter extended WSU's lead from two points to nine points with :50 left to play in the game.

Teder becomes the 16th WSU player in program history to be named Pac-10/12 Player of the Week. She is also the second Coug to earn the distinction this season, as sophomore Charlisse Leger-Walker earned the accolade back on Dec. 13. Leger-Walker and Teder come the first set of WSU teammates to be named Pac-12 Player of the Week in the same season since the 1987-88 campaign, when Penny Bowden (Dec. 14, 1987) and Jonni Gray (Feb. 1, 1988) each earned the distinction.

This season, Teder is averaging 10.9 points per game, while she is putting up 12.5 points in Pac-12 contests. The guard from Estonia leads the team in 3-pointers made with 53 and she is shooting 41.8 percent from behind the arc in league games. Washington State is 10-1 this season when Teder scores 10-or-more points.

Washington State heads to the Bay Area this week to close out the 2021-22 regular season. The Cougars take on No. 2/2 Stanford Thursday, Feb. 24, at 8 p.m. PT, then challenges California Saturday, Feb. 26, at 12 p.m. PT. Both games will air live on the Pac-12 Networks.
