This is the sophomore’s first time winning this award

PULLMAN, WA - DECEMBER 12: Washington State Women’s Basketball versus the Boise State Broncos at Beasley Coliseum - Charlisse Leger-Walker (5) Jack Ellis/CougCenter

Washington State sophomore guard Charlisse Leger-Walker was named Pac-12 player of the week on Monday after helping lead the Cougs to two victories this past week. While this is her first player of the week award, she is not new to Pac-12 awards as she was named freshman of the week seven times last season. She is the first Coug to be named to this award since Chanelle Molina did so in the 2019-20 season.

Last Wednesday, the Cougs became just the third team to win at Gonzaga since 2018 and it was the first time the Cougs have went on the road and beaten the Bulldogs since 2014. in a 51-49 victory, Leger-Walker put up 14 points on 5 of 17 shooting while hitting three of four free throws. She added four rebounds and four steals while adding in three assists and a block.

On Sunday in a 62-55 victory over Boise State, she finished with 23 points and went 8 of 21 from the field and a perfect 4/4 from the free throw line. She had three steals, two assists, and five rebound in the comeback victory. The Cougs trailed the Broncos 38-29 at halftime, they then went on to outscore them 22-9 in the third quarter. Of her 23 points, 19 came in the second half of the game.

Leger-Walker and the Cougs will look to continue their hot start to the season this weekend as they head to Provo, Utah to take on BYU on Saturday at 11 am. They will then head to Ithaca, New York on Sunday to take on Cornell at noon.
