    Post December 9, 2019 - LMU's Eli Scott

    Junior guard Eli Scott had a record-breaking week, capped by the first triple-double performance in program history in Saturday’s win over Grambling State. The junior averaged a double-double on the week 26.0 points per game, 11.5 rebounds per game, and 7.0 assists per game to move into a tie with Wyking Jones for the 17th-most double-doubles in program history with 10.

    The week started with a road battle against #20 Colorado on Wednesday night. The Lions led much of the game at the ranked Pac-12 Buffs, led by Scott’s career-high 31 points on a career-best 12 made field goals. The Lions ultimately lost the near-upset in the final minutes, but Scott finished with a 31 point, 10 rebound double-double, game-highs in both categories and scored 48.4 percent of the team’s points in the game, while adding two steals.

    LMU then hosted Grambling State and benefitted from Scott’s first half facilitation to topple the Tigers. Scott entered halftime with 11 assists on the 18 made LMU baskets, and was a rebound shy of hitting a first half double-double. The Lions shot 69.2 percent (18-for-26) from the field in the first half behind the newly-appointed point guards ability to find his teammates. After taking just two shots in the first half, Scott started looking for his own scoring and went 7-for-9 from the field, and 1-for-1 from long range, after intermission to finish with a game-high 21 points. Scott’s 13 assists is tied for 10th in program history.

    Scott shot 65.5 percent (19-for-29) from the field on the week and 66.7 percent (2-for-3) from three. He also recorded his first two blocks on the season, both on transition chase downs. Through nine games this season, Scott is averaging career highs in points per game, assists per game, steals per game, shooting percentage, free throw percentage, and minutes per game.

    Also Nominated: Yoeli Childs, BYU; Kessler Edwards, Pepperdine; Filip Petrusev, Gonzaga; Josip Vrankic, Santa Clara; Jahlil Tripp, Pacific; Kristers Zoriks, Saint Mary’s

    Default December 16 - Jordan Ford

    In the Gaels' lone game of the week, senior guard Jordan Ford led his team to victory over Cal on Saturday night in Berkeley with a 32-point showing. The senior guard was efficient in all manners of shooting as he went 10-for-14 from the field, 2-of-3 from beyond the arc, and 10-of-11 at the free throw line.

    In addition, Ford grabbed five boards and dished out two assists in 35 minutes of play. The Folsom, Calif. native scored 25 points in the second half alone en route to his 32 total which was the second-most points he has ever scored in a game. It was the second 30-point night of the season for Ford and this is his second career WCC Player of the Week selection.

    Default December 23 - Colbey Ross

    #WCCHOOPS PLAYER OF THE WEEK – COLBEY ROSS, JR., G – PEPPERDINE

    Junior guard Colbey Ross scored 31 and 27 in the Waves' two games this week, averaging 29.0 points and making clutch baskets down the stretch in leading Pepperdine to two thrilling comeback victories.

    Ross also averaged 5.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals. With several backcourt players injured or ill this week, he played all but 20 seconds in the two games (79:40 of 80:00).

    In Tuesday's 77-71 win over Portland State, Ross scored 31 points (his second time this season scoring 30 or more, and the third time of his career). Twenty-two of his 31 came after halftime. Pepperdine trailed by seven with six minutes left but Ross had 11 points in a game-ending 18-4 run, including a three-pointer with 3:10 left that gave Pepperdine the lead for good, and a basket with 12 seconds left that clinched the victory.

    In Saturday's 75-73 victory over Northern Arizona, Ross scored 27 points, with 16 coming in the second half. Pepperdine was once again down by seven with 3 1/2 minutes left but outscored NAU 11-2 the rest of the way. Ross scored the Waves' final nine points -- a three-pointer, then a floater in the lane to tie, then a contested jumper in the right corner to give the Waves a 73-71 lead with 52 seconds left. After NAU tied the game, Ross hit what turned out to be the game-winning free throws with 6.8 seconds left.

    Ross, who became Pepperdine's all-time leader in assists on December 14, moved into the top 20 on Pepperdine's career scoring list against Northern Arizona.

    Ross improved his scoring average from 18.7 to 20.3 points this week, and he also averages a WCC-best 7.2 assists.

    On Saturday, January 4, Tripp enjoyed a career-night in the Tigers historic 4OT win over Saint Mary’s. The Brooklyn, NY native set new career-highs in points (39), minutes (52), field goals made (12), field goal attempts (21), free throws made (14) and free throw attempts (19). Additionally, he also tied season-highs in three pointers made (1) and assists (3).

    Dominating throughout the night, he also grabbed 11 rebounds to record his fifth double-double of the season. His 39 points were also just five-short of the Pacific single-game record of 44 points, set by Bill Stricker on 12/21/68 vs. Portland.

    They really spread this award around, so far 9 different players in 10 weeks with only Ford winning twice and 8 teams represented. Only USD and SCU havent had a winner yet. Cant really argue with any winners so far either.
