    Here is some additional information on Jill's award this week.

    JB winning the Player of the Week award for the 3rd time in a season is the first time a Lady Zag has accomplished this feat since Courtney Vandersloot won the award 3 times in 2010-2011.

    The Gonzaga record for winning the Player of the Week award is five (5) times by Stephanie Hawk in the 2006-2007 season.
