Cal Poly's Leaupepe Selected as Big West Conference Player of the Week

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — Cal Poly senior Dynn Leaupepe was named the Big West Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the second time in her career on Monday.

The honor was announced after the guard from Camarillo tied her career high with a 31-point effort in Saturday's 73-69 win at North Dakota State on ESPN3. In the win over the Bison in Fargo, Leaupepe went 10-for-22 from the floor and 11-of-13 from the free-throw line, equaling her 31-point performance on Feb. 4, 2016 against Hawai'i.

For the entire week (also including a 75-72 loss at Eastern Washington on Dec. 11 and a 112-68 loss at Minnesota on Dec. 13), Leaupepe averaged 22.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.7 steals.

She previously won the weekly accolade on Jan. 9, 2017.

A preseason All-Big West selection, Leaupepe ranks sixth in school history for career scoring (now with 1,189 points), as well as tied for No. 13 in rebounding (490).

Leaupepe's career .815 free-throw percentage ranks as the 16th-highest active total among all Division I players nationally, while her career scoring total ranks 86th in the country. She's currently the Big West's fourth-leading scorer, at 15.3 points per game.

Cal Poly (5-5) — on its first five-game road swing since 2013-14 — will wrap up the trip by visiting Utah Valley (4-7) on Tuesday. Tip-off is set for 2 p.m. PST (3 p.m. Mountain Time) at Utah Community Credit Union Center in Orem.
