Cierra Warren Tabbed MW Women's Hoops Player of Week
Dec. 2, 2013
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - San Diego State senior Cierra Warren (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) was named the Mountain West Women's Basketball Player of the Week for her dominating performance in the Aztecs' 71-67 victory at UC Santa Barbara, the league office announced Monday.
With her award, the SDSU center garnered her first career weekly conference accolade and the first for an Aztec player this season.
Against UCSB last Saturday, Warren scored a team-high 21 points on 9-of-10 (.900) shooting from the floor and a 2-for-2 effort at the free-throw line. She also added one assist, one block and a steal to help SDSU notch its first win of the season.
In the second half, Warren tallied 11 straight points, including the first three-point basket of her career, during a 22-9 run that overturned a 42-33 deficit and catapulted SDSU into the lead for good at 55-51. She also secured the game-clinching rebound after the Gauchos missed a potential game-tying three-pointer with nine seconds remaining in the contest.
With her totals, Warren logged her third 20-plus point performance in just four games played this season, as well as the 15th double-digit scoring effort of her career. For the season, she is averaging 18.8 points per game and shooting a robust 70.2 percent from the floor on 33 of 47 field-goal attempts.
The Aztecs return to action on Tuesday, Dec. 3, when they square off against No. 23 Texas A&M in College Station, Texas, beginning at 7 p.m. CT/5 p.m. PT.
