SAN BRUNO, Calif. - (Dec. 1, 2008 - www.GoZags.com (http://www.gozags.com/) <http://www.GoZags.com (http://www.gozags.com/)> ) Gonzaga University women's basketball player Heather Bowman has been tabbed as the West Coast Conference Player of the Week for the second-straight week as announced by the conference office Monday, Dec. 1.

Bowman, a 6-2 forward, led the Bulldogs to a 2-1 weekend and the WBCA Classic title by averaging 17.7 points and 7.7 rebounds while shooting 41.7 percent from the floor.

Bowman struggled slightly in Gonzaga's opening three-point loss to Marquette University. The Spokane native finished with eight points and seven rebounds. She bounced back to score a game-high 27 points on 7-for-17 field goal shooting and 13-of-15 shooting at the free throw line, along with having six boards and three steals in the Zags 60-55 victory over the University of Utah. Bowman then posted a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Gonzaga past then -No.15 University of Virginia 69-62 in the final game of the WBCA Classic. The victory over the Cavaliers was the first against an Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) school and the second-ever over a ranked opponent.

For her efforts, Bowman was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.

This is Bowman's seventh career WCC Player of the Week honor and the Bulldogs third-straight of the season.

Note to WCC be afraid be very afraid. :p

I am proud to say this is the 7th season of watching Heather Bowman for Oldsport. I watched her develop her style at L-C for 4 years. When I heard that she had signed with GU I jumped around like some kind of nut. I knew the prize that GU had. She will continue to rewrite the record book. :)

Now, some may think that Heather is playing at a level that could not be improved on for next year....wrong!...I also know Katelan Redmon. I watched Katelan for four years at L-C. She is a star player by her on right. I know that Heather along with Katelan will be the best one/two knockout punch in the history of the Lady Zags. My friends, the best of Heather is yet to come. :)

Congratulations Heather! You are the Queen on Bowman Court! ;)
