TUCSON, Arizona — Cate Reese is Pac-12 Player of the Week after averaging 18 points on 53% shooting in three Arizona wins last week.

It's the third time in her career that Reese has been honored with this award.

Last Monday at Oregon, she scored a season-high 25 points on 11-14 shooting and a perfect 3-3 from deep. Reese followed that up with a 17-point performance vs. Washington State, including nine fourth-quarter points to put the Cougars to bed.

On Sunday, she was one of Arizona’s four double-figure scorers as she had 12 points.

This season, Reese is Arizona’s second-leading scorer at 12.6 points per game and leads the team with 5.7 rebounds per game. She is shooting 51% from the field to lead the team and is 7-15 from downtown.
