Pacific's Kenyon Named WCC Player of the Week
Pacific junior forward Kendall Kenyon was named WCC Women's Basketball Player of the Week Monday after her 27-point, 24-rebound performance.
Kenyon's career-highs in both points and rebounds came in the Tigers' 95-65 win over Cal State Stanislaus in the season opener. Her 24 rebounds were the most by a Pacific player since 1984, three off the school record. Kenyon accomplished the feat despite playing just 26 minutes.
In the Tigers' first game as members of the WCC, Kenyon tied the WCC conference record for single-game rebounds.
It was the second 20-plus rebound game of Kenyon's career, and she surpassed 500 career boards in the process. She's now on pace to break Pacific's career rebounding record after setting a new Pacific single-season record last season.
Kenyon's 27 points set a new career-high as she connected on 10 of 16 from the field and 7-of-10 from the free throw line. She also blocked three shots and came away with three steals.
The award is the first West Coast Conference weekly honor for Pacific women's basketball in the program's first year in the conference.
Kenyon shared the award with Saint Mary's Jackie Nared, who challenge the Gaels' scoring record with 37 points against Washington.
The Tigers are in action beginning 7 p.m. Monday at home against UC Davis.
