LARAMIE, Wyo. -
For the third time this season, senior forward Chaundra Sewell was named Mountain West Women's Basketball Player of the Week for games played from March 5-10, 2013. It is her third MW weekly accolade of the season and of her career. She earned the honor with UNLV forward Rejane Verin.
Sewell, a senior from Broomfield, Colo., led the Cowgirls to a 65-51 win over Colorado State last week, the Wyoming's only game of the week. Sewell scored 22 points and grabbed a career-high 17 rebounds, including eight offensive boards. The double-double was her 11th of the season. She shot 60.0 percent (9-15) from the field and was 4-6 (66.7 percent) from the free throw line to go along with two assists and a steal.
