Jan. 25, 2016

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 25, 2016) - Boise State senior center Miquelle Askew has earned her third Mountain West Women’s Basketball Player of the Week honor this season as announced by the league office this morning. Askew led the Broncos to a sweep last week rallying Boise State from 13 points down to a 78-75 victory at San Jose State, then helped the Blue and Orange beat Wyoming 58-49 in Boise on Saturday. This is the fourth player of the week overall for the Broncos this year.

Askew’s Highlights

  • On the week averaged 25.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.5 steals per game … shot 66.7 percent (22-33) from the floor and 77.8 percent (7-9) from the free-throw line.
  • In the win at San Jose State she kept the Broncos in the game while the team struggled scoring … she finished the game with a double-double scoring 50 percent of the team’s points with a career-high 39 points and a career-tying 13 rebounds to go with two assists and career-high three steals … shot 72.7 percent (16-22) from the floor and 77.8 percent (7-9) from the floor.
  • Askew’s 39 points at San Jose State broke the school’s 25 year old scoring record of 37 set in 1991, it is also the most scored by a MW player this year and the third-most ever scored in a league game in MW history, it is tied for the 11th-most points scored in the NCAA this season.
  • The 16 field goals made is also a school record and ties the MW all-time record.
  • Askew suffered the consequences of scoring a school record in the next game at home against Wyoming as the Cowgirls doubled and triple teamed her every time she touched the ball … she battled through it to score eight of her 12 points during the second half including a field goal during the Broncos’ decisive 7-0 run in the fourth period to break a 40-40 tie to give Boise State the lead for good.
  • Askew finished the Wyoming game with 12 points, four rebounds, a career-tying three assists and two blocks, to go with one steal … shot 54.5 percent (6-11) from the floor.
