Chene Cooper named Big Sky Player of the Week

Eastern Washington's Chene Cooper has been named the Big Sky Player of the Week. This is the first time the junior has won the honor.

The Eagle women's basketball team pulled off two key conference wins last week with victories over Northern Arizona and Weber State. The wins improved the Eagles to 7-5 in Big Sky play and 11-14. This also has the Eagles sitting in sixth place in the Big Sky.

From the official Big Sky release:

Against the Lumberjacks, Cooper scored a game-high 23 points, one shy of her career high. She also had six rebounds, five assists and two steals. The junior hit two three-pointers in the contest, the second coming with under a minute left to put the Eagles up by one. Cooper went on to make 3-of-4 free throws in the final minute to seal the victory.

In Eastern’s win over Weber State, Cooper scored 18 points, another game high, and had four rebounds, seven assists and two steals. She hit 8-of-10 free throws, and had just two turnovers in 33 minutes on the court.
