COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. BYU senior forward Melanie Pearson and UNLV junior guard Constance
Jinks were named the Mountain West Conference Women's Basketball Co-Players of the Week.
Pearson earned the award for the first time in her BYU career. This is the Cougars second player honor this season.
A native of Irvine, Calif. (Woodbridge HS), Pearson more than tripled her scoring average for the
season with a 28-point outburst in the Cougars'
77-65 victory at Utah last week. Pearson, who entered the game averaging 9.2 points per contest,
connected on 7-of-9 field goals, 5-of-7 three-pointers and all nine free throws as she earned
game-high scoring honors.
