Feb 28, 2022
Stanford's Cameron Brink was named the 2022 Pac-12 Women's Basketball Defensive Player of the Year, presented by Nextiva. Stanford's second consecutive Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year and sixth overall, Brink has been a menace on both ends of the floor. She's 18th nationally in blocked shots per game (2.37) and has 152 total rejections in 59 career games, already good for eighth in the Cardinal record book. Brink also tops the league in rebounding, pulling down 8.2 boards per game, and had a 22-rebound performance against No. 4 Indiana in November, the highest single-game total in the conference in three seasons. In that victory over Hoosiers, Brink also added 21 points, five assists and five blocks to put together just the third 20-point, 20-rebound, five-assist, five-block performance in women’s college basketball since 1999-2000 and the first against a ranked team.
