WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UC San Diego senior point guard Chelsea Carlisle was named the Wilson/California Collegiate Athletic Association Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending February 12, the league office announced on Monday.
Carlisle turned in a pair of impressive performances over the weekend, leading the top-ranked Tritons to home wins over Chico State and Cal State Stanislaus. She averaged team-highs of 19.0 points, 4.0 assists and 3.5 steals, while also snaring 5.5 rebounds in two games. She shot a combined 64% (14-for-22) from the field and hit 38% (3-for-8) of her three-point tries.
Carlisle came up big in UCSD's 93-76 triumph over Chico State on Friday, finishing with a game-high 26 points, seven rebounds, four assists and five steals in 37 minutes. She finished 9-of-15 from the field and 3-of-7 from beyond the arc en route to her second-highest scoring output of the season.
The two-time All-American had another solid outing in limited action against Cal State Stanislaus on Saturday, finishing with 12 points, four boards, four assists and a pair of steals in just 17 minutes of work in the Tritons' 85-51 victory. She finished 5-of-7 from the floor, reaching double figures for the 23rd time in 24 games this season.
Monday's award marks Carlisle's seventh career CCAA Player of the Week
honor and her fourth selection this season. She was named the
conference player of the week twice in November and then again on January 16.
The Tritons, who wrapped up their home slate with a perfect 13-0 record with the wins over the Wildcats and Warriors, will now hit the road for four straight to conclude the regular season. UCSD can clinch its third CCAA regular season title in four years with a victory over second place Cal State Monterey Bay on Friday night in Seaside.
