For the fifth time this season, Charlisse Leger-Walker was named the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week. The announcement on Monday from the Pac-12 means that she has now won the award 5 of the last 7 weeks.
Leger-Walker finished her week averaging 23 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 3 steals per game over the stretch against the Oregon schools. She now leads the conference in points per game with 20.2 and steals per game with 3.
On Friday, the Cougars fell to #8 Oregon 58-50 in a game that had Leger-Walker’s name everywhere. The freshman put up 24 points and was the only Cougar to put up double digits. She tied her career high in rebounds with 8 and added three steals - all were game high’s for the Cougs.
On Sunday against Oregon State, the Cougs went to their fourth overtime game in their last five appearances and needed all 22 points from Leger-Walker as she would hit the game-winner in double-overtime to snap their three game losing streak. She put up 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and had 3 steals to put away the Beavers. She has now put up double digits in all 12 of the Cougars games this season and is just three games away from Lia Galdeira’s record of 15 straight games with double digits.
