Washington State redshirt sophomore Borislava Hristova, the third-leading scorer in the Pac-12 Conference, was named to the 15-player all-conference team Tuesday.

The Bulgarian native averaged 18.1 points and posted 11 games of 20 points or more for the Cougars, who face USC in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament on Thursday in Seattle.

Hristova won a player of the week award during conference play after blitzing Colorado and Utah for 32.5 points per game on 65.9 percent (29-of-64) jump-shooting over the second weekend of conference play.

Hristova leads the Cougars into the Pac-12 Championships Thursday against the No. 7 seed Trojans. The game is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Key Arena in Seattle and can be seen on the Pac-12 Network.
