Gonzaga University. Home to two of the four Co-Players of the Week in the West Coast Conference. Elias Harris shared the award with Pepperdine's Lorne Jackson, and Heather Bowman joined Miranda Ayim after both Bulldogs notched key wins in conference play last week.

Bowman became the all-team leading scorer in WCC history, surpassing Portland's Martha Sheldon mark of 1,953 points scored from 1987-92. Bowman has now scored 1,956 points, with the record-setting points coming in Saturday's game against San Diego at the McCarthey Athletic Center – a game seen live on SWX-TV.

Ayim was named Co-Player of the Week with Bowman after averaging 23.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks against Santa Clara and San Francisco.

On the men's side, Harris averaged 25.5 points and 11.0 rebounds in the Zags' win over Saint Mary's and San Diego. He also had four blocks. The 20-year-old freshman scored a season-high 31 points and grabbed 13 points for his third double-double of the year in an 89-82 win at Saint Mary's. The 31 points was the first 30-point game for a Bulldog since Adam Morrison scored 35 in the 2006 NCAA Tournament against Xavier.

Lorne Jackson, from Pepperdine, was the Co-Player of the Week. He averaged 18.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in wins over Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Gonzaga's men's team plays Thursday at home against Pepperdine – a game seem live on KHQ in the Spokane market (tape delayed on FSN at a still-to-be-determined time outside of Spokane). The women's team also plays Pepperdine on Thursday, with tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m. in Malibu.
