SDSU's Quenese Davis Earns Second MWC Player-of-the-Week Honor In 2010
March 8, 2010
SAN DIEGO - For the second consecutive week, a San Diego State women's basketball player earned Mountain West Conference Player-of-the-Week honors, as senior point guard Quenese Davis (Sacramento, Calif.) was tabbed for her effort in the team's two victories at Colorado State and Air Force. Davis shared the award with Wyoming's Aubrey Vandiver.
Davis averaged 20 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals, while shooting 63 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from behind the arc in the two games. Against Colorado State last Wednesday, she scored 14 of her 17 points in the second half in helping the team turn a three-point halftime lead into a 19-point victory. Davis tallied seven rebounds, five assists and matched a season best with five steals vs. the Rams.
Two days later, playing in her final home regular season game, the 5-10 guard made seven of her first seven shots from the field, posting a 76.9 shooting percentage and nailing all three of her 3-point attempts in the team's 35-point blowout of Air Force. Davis ended up with 23 points on the afternoon, her most in 2010 conference play, and with three steals moved into second all-time in league history with 264 career takeaways.
It is the third career MWC award for Davis and she is the only Aztec to be honored twice in 2010. Classmate Jené Morris (San Francisco, Calif.) and Paris Johnson (San Diego, Calif.) each received the award once earlier this season.
San Diego State opens the 2010 Conoco Mountain West Conference Championships on Wednesday beginning at 7 p.m. PT at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nev. The No. 3 seed Aztecs will face the winner of Tuesday's Wyoming-UNLV first round game.
