    Default Yvonne Ejim Wins WCC Freshman of the Week

    Yvonne, deserves her own thread for winning this award.

    From GoZags:

    SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Gonzaga freshman forward Yvonne Ejim was named the University Credit Union #WCCHoops Freshman of the Week for games played Jan. 11-17.

    This is the second conference award recognition for Gonzaga this season; Jenn Wirth was selected as the UCU #WCCHoops Player of the Week on Jan. 11.

    Freshman Yvonne Ejim was instrumental in GU's sweep of Santa Clara and San Francisco this week as the freshman averaged a season-best 8.5 points over the two-game span.

    Against Santa Clara, Ejim came off the bench to score seven points in 16 minutes of play, finishing 2-of-3 from the floor and 3-of-6 from the charity stripe. She added two rebounds in the win. The Calgary, Alberta native shined in Saturday's 76-52 victory at San Francisco, finishing with a season-high 10 points off a perfect 5-of-5 from the floor. Ejim provided much-needed assistance when GU's starting forward LeeAnne Wirth struggled with foul trouble, and she handled San Francisco's posts inside, helping the Zags outscore USF 42-24 in the paint.

    For the weekend, Ejim missed just a single shot, finishing 87.5 percent from the floor. She also contributed 1.5 assists per game for the Zags.

    Ejim, along with the entire Gonzaga crew, hosts BYU in a single game this week on Saturday. Tip off is set for 2 p.m. inside the McCarthey Athletic Center. Check for up-to-date game time information.
