Washington State junior Borislava Hristova scored a career-high 38 points on Sunday in the Cougars 79-76 win over the Huskies on Sunday earning her Pac-12 Player of the Week honors. This was the first conference game for both the Cougars and the Huskies

On top of her 38 points she hauled in 5 rebounds including the game securing rebound in the final seconds of the game. Hristova went 4 of 6 from deep and 16 of 24 from the field. She also went 2 of 3 from the line in her 37 minutes.

Her 16 field goals made is a new record for the Cougars and the 38 points is the third highest in program history. Cougar head coach Kamie Ethridge said Hristova “was unbelievable making huge shot after huge shot. It’s nice to have someone that can do that”

While Hristova was the star of the game, the Cougs also had help from Alexys Swedlund who added 16 points and went 4 of 10 from deep and Chanelle Molina who added 14 points of her own and secured a team high 9 rebounds in the win over the Huskies.

The Cougs will have the next few days off for the New Year but will pick things back up this weekend when they head South to take on both of the Oregon schools with the Beavers on Friday at 7:00 pm and the Ducks on Sunday at 3:00 pm. Both games can be seen on Pac-12 Networks.
