Just days after the Pac-12 Conference named her freshman of the week, former Konawaena standout Chanelle Molina took it one giant step further.
The three-time all-state player of the year scored 33 points to power Washington State over No. 9 UCLA, 82-73, in Pullman, Wash. Molina tied the freshman scoring mark set by another former Konawaena Wildcat, Lia Galdeira. The victory on Friday night quickly made headlines near and far for Molina and the Cougars, from the Big Island’s Hawaii Tribune-Herald to the Seattle Times, as well as breaking news in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser.
Molina also had five rebounds and seven assists to go with her career-high scoring output.
