COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -
Wyoming junior guard Jodi Bolerjack has been named the Mountain West Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week, earning her first career honor.
The Columbia, Mo., native averaged 20 points and three assists in two games last week, shooting 78 percent (14-of-18) from the field and 100 percent (10-of-10) from beyond the arc. In the Cowgirls' 76-46 romp past Northern Colorado, Bolerjack was perfect from the field (10-of-10) and from three-point range (6-of-6), finishing with a career high 28 points, including a career-high-tying six three-pointers. She sparked a 22-2 run against the Bears, netting all of her 16 first-half points during the surge that lifted Wyoming from a 7-6 deficit to a 28-9 advantage.
Bolerjack followed that up with a career high 45 minutes in a 68-62 double-overtime heartbreaker to Kansas State. She scored 12 points and had one blocked shot against the Wildcats, extending her three-point field goal streak to 13 with 4-of-4 shooting from beyond the arc. Her 12 points put her over 500 in her career with 510, while giving her 94 career three-point field goals to tie for fifth in Wyoming's record books.
