Tia Presley voted Pac-12 Player of the Week

From Pullman -- Spokane's own Tia Presley was named the Pac-12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the week of Feb. 10-17. Presley earned her first such honor of the season by averaging 32.0 point and shooting 50 percent from the floor in Washington State's sweep of Colorado and Utah, the team's first road sweep of the season.

She scored 32 points in both victories. It was the first time a WSU women's basketball player had scored 30 points in consecutive efforts since Jenni Ruff in 1995-96. She scored 16 points from the free throw line alone against Utah, making 16 of 21 in WSU's 83-73 win. She scored 22 points in the first half of WSU's 80-77 win over Colorado.

WSU is now 14-12 and 8-6 in conference play. The Cougars have won more games overall and in conference than any WSU team since 1995-96. That was also the last year WSU had a 500-point scorer until Presley did it this season.
