Basketball Players of the Week
NWAACC Men's Player of the Week
Salim Gloyd has been one of the best all around players all year, as just one of four players averaging a double double. Gloyd's past week have given him his eighth and nine double doubles of the season with 30 points and 11 rebounds against Everett and 20 points and 20 rebounds against Olympic. This week makes the second time that Gloyd has been named the NWAACC Men's Player of the Week.
Nominator's comments: "Salim dominated both ends of the court in both wins this week. He was exceptional defensively while hitting key baskets in both contests. His rebounding is game changing on both ends."
NWAACC Women's Player of the Week
Sophomore Guard Michelle Seitz has been having an incredible season so far for the Warriors. In the top 17 in points (16.12), rebounds (8.41) and assists (3.71), Seitz has put on an offensive show to lead Walla Walla to a 16-1 start, but no week has been as impressive as Seitz' last. Against Yakima Valley, Seitz broke a school record for points in a single game, and returned a few nights later to notch another double double against Wenatchee Valley - totalling 60 points and 26 rebounds between two games and two wins.
Nominator's comments: "Michelle broke the WWCC school record for points in a single game with 44 on Wednesday night. She had consecutive double doubles during the week – 44 pts and 16 rebs vs Yakima Wed, and 18 pts and 10 rebs vs Wenatchee Saturday."
NWAACC Player of the Week - Honorable mention
#32 Jenny Johnson - Clackamas
One of the league's better scorers, sophomore guard Jenny Johnson is usually a pillar of the Clackamas offense. She has been averaging just under 16 points per game, and is 13th in the league in assists with 3.83 per contest. That came in handy, as Johnson led the second half comeback against No. 1 Lane and knocked off the undefeated Titans 77-64 behind Johnson's 25 points, five rebounds and three assists. Johnson led all scores in that game, the 10th in a row for Clackamas.
Nominator's comments: "Jenny Johnson led the Cougars in back-to-back 25 point games, including a win over the top ranked Lane Titans."
