Cal Poly women’s basketball standout Lynn Leaupepe was selected Monday as the Big West Conference Player of the Week following two strong performances against Hawaii and CSUN.
The 5-foot-9 junior guard from Camarillo averaged a double-double with 23.5 points, 10 rebounds and two steals for the Mustangs, who split their two games against the Rainbow Warriors (87-79 loss) and the Matadors (70-63 victory).
Leaupepe made 52.9 percent of her shots from the field, including a 60 percent mark from behind the 3-point line. She ranks fourth in the Big West in both scoring (15.9 points) and rebounding (7.8) per game.
It was the second time in the past three weeks a Cal Poly player received the conference’s weekly award. Leaupepe’s twin sister, Dynn, earned the same distinction Jan. 9.
Never miss a local story.
The Mustangs (7-11, 3-3 Big West) are scheduled to play one game this week, a 7 p.m. Saturday pairing with Hawaii in Honolulu. They return the first week of February to host UC Davis and UC Riverside.
