SAN BRUNO, Calif. — Gonzaga junior forward Jenn Wirth was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week for her efforts in a pair of GU wins, league officials announced Monday.

The award is the second of the season for Wirth (Dec. 2), and third of the year for Gonzaga. Jill Townsend was also honored on Dec. 9.

Wirth had back-to-back double-doubles to lead Gonzaga to wins over two of the top teams in the league in Saint Mary’s and Pacific. First, she helped the Zags to a dominating 74-49 win over the previously undefeated Gaels with 10 points and 10 rebounds to go along with a block and a steal. Wirth was 5-for-11 from the floor in the game and had three offensive rebounds among her total of 10 boards.

Then on Saturday, Wirth scored a career-high 24 points on 10-of-13 shooting and added 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in a 68-67 win over then-second-place Pacific. Her 24-point effort was the first 20-plus scoring game for the ultra-balanced Gonzaga squad on the season, and well over her season scoring average of 11.0 points per game.
