RENO, Nev. – For the first time in her career, Nevada women’s basketball senior Jade Redmon has been named the Mountain West Player of the Week.
This is the second weekly conference award this season for the Wolf Pack as fellow senior Terae Briggs earned the distinction back in December. It marks the first time since the 2014-15 campaign that Nevada has received multiple MW Player of the Week awards in the same season.
Redmon had an all-around solid week, helping the Wolf Pack to a 2-0 week for the first time in conference play this season, which included an upset on the road at Fresno State. For the week, she averaged 19.0 points per game, shot 50 percent from the field and hit 92 percent from the free throw line, going 12-of-13. Redmon led all scorers in both games, totaling a season-high 21 points in the win over San Diego State and 17 points in the road win at Fresno State. Her 21 points against SDSU marked her third 20-point game of the season.
On Saturday, Redmon played 36 minutes and anchored a Wolf Pack defense that held Fresno State to a season-low 41 points and under 27 percent shooting from the field. She added 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals to her week as well. Additionally, Redmon extended her streak of scoring in double figures to 22 games, which is every game in which she’s played this season. She is the only player in the Mountain West to score in double figures in every game they’ve played this year.
Nevada concludes its two-game road trip next Wednesday, Feb. 27 when it travels to Las Vegas to take on UNLV at 6 p.m.
