After a 61-point weekend, Eastern Washington guard Tyler Harvey has been selected a co-Big Sky Conference men’s basketball Player of the Week for the third time this season. On Thursday, Harvey had a 35-point game against Northern Colorado, his fourth of at least 30 this season and 10th of his career. He added 26 points two days later against North Dakota.

Gonzaga women defeat Waves, take over first place alone

Pepperdine scratched within four points with just more than a minute to play, but the Gonzaga women’s basketball team hit free throws when they mattered Thursday night to secure a 73-64 win in front of 4,981 at McCarthey Athletic Center.

Women’s basketball notes: Gonzaga’s Elle Tinkle evolves into scoring guard

When the season began, the Gonzaga women’s basketball team’s half-court offense more resembled a game of keep-away than players coordinating an attack. Lisa Fortier began her head coaching career without two senior guards, Haiden Palmer and Jazmine Redmon, who were leaders that previous teams could rely upon for scoring, defense and hustle. As a result, the Zags (10-4, 3-0 WCC) lost some early games as they struggled to find consistency among new players.
