Cal Poly junior Molly Schlemer secured her second Big West Women's Basketball Player of the Week honor of the season on Monday after a dominant performance in conference wins last week for the Mustangs.
The Righetti High graduate averaged 21 points, 10 rebounds and 2.5 blocks for the week as Cal Poly beat Northridge and Hawaii to stay half a game out of first place.
In a 66-49 win over the Matadores, the 6-5 junior made 10 of her 14 shots to finish with 22 points, 8 rebounds and a career-best 4 blocked shots.
She followed that up with her fifth double-double of the season with 20 points and 12 rebounds in a 47-43 win over the Rainbow Wahine. It marked the twelfth time in the last thirteen game she scored 10 or more points in a game.
Schlemer leads the Mustangs with 12.6 points and ranks second at 6.6 rebounds per game.
"There's no doubt she's the most improved player I've probably ever had in my program from a basketball standpoint and maybe even more from a physical, athletic standpoint," said Faith Mimnaugh, who's in her 16th year as Cal Poly's head coach.
Cal Poly plays at UC Riverside and Cal State Fullerton this week.
