Congrats to Heather!

Gonzaga University women’s basketball player Heather Bowman has been tabbed as the West Coast Conference Player of the Week as announced by the conference office Monday, Jan. 5. This is Bowman’s third Player of the Week accolade of the season and eighth of her career.

Bowman, a 6-2 forward from Spokane, Wash., helped the Bulldogs close out their non-conference action with a 1-1 week. She averaged 26.0 points and 9.5 rebounds, while shooting a sizzling 62.5 percent (20-32) from the field and a perfect 12-of-12 from the charity stripe.

Bowman began the week scoring a game-high 19 points in the Zags 77-58 setback to then-No. 8 University of Tennessee. She then poured in a career-high 33 points, along with 12 boards, her 19th career double-double, in the Bulldogs 93-70 victory over Saint Joseph’s.

As of Jan. 2, Bowman has amassed 1,330 career points at Gonzaga to rank her eighth all-time.

Bowman and teammate Courtney Vandersloot have accounted for five of this season’s eight WCC Player of the Week accolades.
