    Default Week of 12 /17/18: Anthony Townes, UOP

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – ANTHONY TOWNES, SR., F – PACIFIC
    Senior forward Anthony Townes was key in the Pacific men’s basketball 2-0 week against Big West squads – Long Beach State (74-68) and Cal State Northridge (79-77).

    Overall, Townes averaged 19 points on 70.6 percent shooting from the field and 93.3 percent shooting from the free throw line. In addition, he averaged 7.5 rebounds .5 steals and .5 blocks per game.

    In a rare Monday night game, Townes was one of three Pacific players to score in double-figures as he totaled 14. After only scoring two points in the first half, Townes went a perfect 4-for-4 from the field and the free throw line to score 12 of his total points in the second half. Then in Sunday’s road game at Cal State Northridge, the Modesto, Calif. native produced his best performance of the season. In 30 minutes of work he scored a career-high 24 points on 8-for-12 shooting from the field and 8-for-9 shooting from the free throw line and pulled down a team-leading seven rebounds.

    The two wins extends the Tigers win streak to 4 as they improve to 9-4 on the season. That record marks the best start since the 2013-14 season.

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – COLBEY ROSS, SO., G – PEPPERDINE
    In the Waves' only game this week, sophomore guard Colbey Ross scored a career-high 29 points to lead Pepperdine to an upset victory over Saint Mary's, which included 11 points in overtime. He also had nine assists, three rebounds and a blocked shot. He made both of his three-point attempts and went a career-best 15-for-16 from the free throw line.

    Ross scored 12 of Pepperdine's final 17 points in regulation, including a free throw with six seconds left that sent the game to OT. He scored the Waves' first six points of OT and had 11 of the Waves' 15 points in the extra period. Up by two with under 30 seconds to play, Ross hit a dagger three-pointer to put the game out of reach.

    Saint Mary's was a big favorite coming into the game, but the Waves ended a six-game losing streak to the Gaels behind Ross' effort. It was Pepperdine's 10th win of the season, giving the Waves their first double-digit win total since 2015-16.

    Because of their balance, it is difficult for a Gonzaga player to put up the kind of numbers you need to stand out....but in the end I think it will be Rui...….it would be ironic if he would make All American and not be the MVP of the WCC....but.....it could happen.

    Clarke has the analytics, but Rui has the name recognition. It'll be interesting to see how it comes out.

    It is the third WCC Player of the Week selection for Hachimura this season. Gonzaga extended its NCAA record conference road winning streak to 28 games in a 93-63 win at BYU on Thursday. The Zags won their 12th straight overall in a 85-69 decision against San Diego on Saturday.

    Default Well, it's about time. . .Congratulations, Mr. Clarke !

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – BRANDON CLARKE, JR., F – GONZAGA

    Junior forward Brandon Clarke recorded back-to-back 20-point games in a pair of big wins for the No. 4/4 Zags. He totaled 44 points on 68 percent (17-of-25) shooting from the field. The redshirt junior added 22 rebounds, eight blocks, four assists and three steals. In the 92-62 win over San Francisco, he scored 20 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds. The 16 rebounds were the most in the McCarthey Athletic Center’s 15-year history.

    Clarke also broke the program’s single-season record for blocked shots. He needed two for the record and finished with five in the game. His 77 blocks are the third-most currently in the country. The Phoenix native’s 77 blocks are three shy of 10th for the most in a career in program history. In Saturday’s rout win over Saint Mary’s, Clarke blocked three more shots and scored a game-high 24 points in 23 minutes on 9-of-12 shooting.

    With six regular season contests remaining, Clarke ranks ninth on the WCC single-season blocked shot list and needs 15 to crack the top-five, while his .688 (172-250) field goal percentage would be the best in conference history, besting the mark of current NBA Zag Domantas Sabonis who connected on .668 (145-217) in 2015.

    Default February 25, 2019 - Josh Perkins

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – JOSH PERKINS, SR., G – GONZAGA

    Senior guard Josh Perkins had a historic week for the No. 2/2 Zags (27-2, 14-0 WCC). He helped Gonzaga complete an undefeated home schedule and wrapped up the final home games of his career by scoring 31 points and dishing out 16 assists. The redshirt senior broke the program’s career assist record set by Matt Santangelo from 1996 to 2000. He needed eight assists to break the record Thursday, and finished with nine in the Bulldogs’ 92-64 win over Pepperdine.

    Perkins added seven assists in Saturday’s 102-68 victory against BYU on ESPN to bring his career total to 677, which ranks sixth in West Coast Conference history. In addition, Perkins scored a season-high 21 points, with a season-high seven made field goals. Perkins was 7-of-11 from the field, including 3-of-4 from three-point range against the Cougars.

    His 199 assists this season rank fourth in program history, and sixth in the nation this season. He is ninth in the country averaging 6.9 assists per game and seventh with a 3.37 assist-to-turnover ratio. The two wins moved the Park Hill, Colo. native into second place in GU history with 128 wins (17 losses), which also ranks in the Top-10 in Div. 1 history.

    Thursday’s win also clinched the Zags their seventh straight regular season conference title, a feat Perkins has achieved in each of his five seasons with Gonzaga. Monday, Gonzaga moved back atop the AP Top-25 Poll.

    Default Brandon Clarke WCC POW - March 4, 2019

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – BRANDON CLARKE, JR., F – GONZAGA

    Junior forward Brandon Clarke helped the No. 1/1 Zags (29-2, 16-0) complete an undefeated season by winning their 31st and 32nd consecutive conference road games. Gonzaga’s wins at Pacific and Saint Mary’s also extended the nation’s longest win streak to 20 games. Clarke totaled 36 points on 15-of-20 (75 percent) shooting from the field during the week, adding 20 rebounds and nine blocks. He recorded his 11th double-double of the season in Thursday’s win at Pacific, scoring 21 points, grabbing 13 boards, blocked five shots and dished out a season-high four assists. Saturday at Saint Mary’s, the redshirt junior scored 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting, pulled down seven rebounds and blocked four shots.

    Clarke’s 99 blocks are the second-most in the country, while his 3.19 blocks per game ranks third. He’s already broken the GU single-season record, and now ranks sixth in program history for most blocks in a career … with all 99 blocks coming this season. The Phoenix, Ariz., native now ranks second in WCC history for most blocks in a single season, 15 away from the record. He finished second in league history with 52 blocks in conference action. Clarke tops the nation shooting 68.8 percent from the field, which is on pace for the WCC record. He leads the conference, and is ninth in country, making 70.5 percent of his shots inside-the-arc. He has dunked 47 shots this season.
