EUGENE, Ore. - After helping the Oregon women's basketball team break both the conference and school scoring record in Saturday's win over CSU Bakersfield, Chrishae Rowe was named Pac-12 Freshman of the Week.
Rowe posted 27 points on 8-of-17 shooting, including 4-of-6 from three-point range. The freshman from Corona, Calif., also went a perfect 7-of-7 at the free throw line and grabbed six rebounds.
The Ducks' 131 points broke Stanford's Pac-12 scoring record of 122 points, set both in 1994 and 1993. Oregon's 20 three-pointers on Saturday night also broke the Pac-12 and school record and was just two shy of matching the NCAA mark.
After two strong exhibition games, Rowe earned a start from head coach Paul Westhead in her first collegiate game.
The 5-foot-10 guard scored 17 points in the Ducks' first exhibition win, 103-58 versus Western Oregon. Rowe followed that up with a team-high 35 points with 15 rebounds in a 116-51 exhibition victory over Oregon Tech.
Rowe was rated the No. 67 recruit in the nation by ESPN HoopGurlz coming out of Santiago HS, where she had two 40-point games as a senior. She also was named Southern Section IAA Player of the Year as a senior, in addition to picking up Riverside Press-Enterprise Player of the Year and Los Angeles Times All-Area Team honors.
