The first Pac-12 Player of the Year from Utah, Alissa Pili leads the league in both scoring (20.6) and field goal percentage (.599) and is one of two players in the country averaging those numbers this season (Mackenzie Holmes - Indiana). Also second in the Conference in 3-point field goal percentage, hitting 45.8 percent from behind the arc (27-of-59), Pili is tracking to become just the second NCAA women's basketball player since 1999-2000 to average 20.0 points, hit 60.0 percent from the floor and make at least 20 3-pointers in a single season (Napheesa Collier - UConn; 2016-17). She has scored in double figures in all but one game this season, including 16 20-point efforts. Utah is now the eighth Pac-12 program to boast a Conference Player of the Year and the first to have their initial winner since California's Devanei Hampton won the first of the Golden Bears' two in 2006-07.
