Parker, a 5-foot-10 sophomore guard from Heber City, Utah and Wasatch HS, scored a game-high 16 points in the 70-40 win over No. 18 Gonzaga last Thursday. She was perfect from the free throw line going 3-for-3 while adding five rebounds, four assists and one steal in BYU's only game last week.

The double figures in points were the sixth in league play, the 16th of the year and the 21st of her career.
