In addition to a second Pac-12 Conference freshman of the week honor in as many weeks, former Konawaena Wildcat Chanelle Molina was named the U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) freshman of the week today.
Molina was already making headlines with a huge 33-point, five-rebound, seven-assist performance in Washington State’s 82-73 upset of then-No. 9 UCLA on Friday. Against USC on Sunday, the three-time Star-Advertiser all-state player of the year scored 16 points to lead the Cougars in a 74-57 win.
Washington State (8-8) is now 3-2 in conference play. The Cougars travel to No. 18 Arizona and Arizona State this week.
