Umpqua Community College sophomore Taylor Stricklin has been selected as the Under Armour Women's Basketball Player of the Week by the Northwest Athletic Conference.

Taylor Stricklin averaged 23.8 points, five rebounds, five assists and two and a half steals in four wins for the Riverhawks last week.

"As our only sophomore Taylor did exactly what sophomores are supposed to do early in the season — she led by example, played consistently well and hit big shots when we needed them," UCC coach Dave Stricklin said.

Taylor Stricklin's best performance of the first week came in the 102-99 victory over Clackamas, when she scored 31 points.

Big Bend Community College sophomore Koby Huerta was named the Men's Basketball Player of the Week.
