    WBB Rice Named WCC Player of the Week for Second Straight Week
    Senior forward led Zags to undefeated weekend

    SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Gonzaga women's basketball senior Zykera Rice was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week for the second-straight week, as announced by the league office Monday morning.

    Rice helped Gonzaga to an undefeated week with wins over Saint Mary's and Pacific. The Tacoma, Wash., native averaged 18.5 points per game shooting 55 percent from the floor to go along with 3.5 rebounds per game.

    On Thursday against Saint Mary's, Rice finished with 16 points and was perfect from the line (4-4) to lift Gonzaga over the Gaels, 74-62. Saturday against Pacific, Rice helped the Bulldogs overcome their largest first-quarter deficit of the season (-11) to surge past the Tigers 88-65. She finished with a game-high tying 21 points on 10-of-16 from the floor with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 21 minutes of play.

    The Bulldogs continue play this week at home as they host Portland Saturday, Jan. 12 at 2 p.m. in the McCarthey Athletic Center.

    Was a little surprised that Megan McKay was not even nominated after her display against GU and her 18 points and 55%+ shooting against Portland.

    Congratulations Zee on a well earned recognition.

    A call out to all of her teammates who made her selection possible, great job ladies.
