Aztec Basketball's Quenese Davis Earns First Career MWC Player of the Week Award
Feb. 23, 2009
SAN DIEGO - San Diego State junior guard Quenese Davis (Sacramento, Calif.) has been named the Mountain West Conference Women's Basketball co-Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. Davis, who shares the award with Utah's Morgan Warburton, had a career-high 25 points and a season-high nine rebounds in leading the Aztecs to a 75-64 victory over New Mexico on Saturday.
Davis helped SDSU earn it first win over the Lobos in San Diego since 2001 and completed the team's first regular-season sweep vs. UNM since 1995. The Sacramento, Calif., native had a dominating performance in the first half by making 6-of-7 shots from the field and pulling down six of the team's 14 rebounds to give the Aztecs a seven-point advantage at the break. She ended the game 8-for-15 from the field and made all eight of her free throw attempts in the second half, including four in the final 37 seconds, to preserve the win.
Davis also had a game-high five assists on Saturday to give her 448 for her career, tying the SDSU all-time record with Aztec Hall of Fame member Falisha Wright.
Davis, who picked up her first career MWC award, becomes the third Aztec to garner league player-of-the-week honors this season. This is the seventh time in 15 weeks that an SDSU player has been selected, with Paris Johnson (San Diego, Calif.) being tabbed four times and Jené Morris (San Francisco, Calif.) chosen on two occasions.
San Diego State heads into the final two weeks of the regular season with three of its final four games on the road, beginning this Wednesday at 7 p.m. MT at BYU in Provo, Utah. The game will be televised live on BYU-TV and will also be shown on a tape-delay basis on The Mtn. (Thurs., Feb. 26, 7 p.m. PT).
