Cal State’s Wilt wins weekly honor a third time

Cal State San Bernardino forward Vanessa Wilt has been named Wilson California Collegiate Athletic Association Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for the week of Dec. 17-23. It marks the third time this season Wilt has been honored.

Wilt, a 6-foot-1 senior from Hesperia, averaged 25 points and 15 rebounds in helping the Coyotes post a 1-1 record at the Dixie State College Tournament last week.

In a 75-54 loss to No. 15 Seattle Pacific, Wilt scored 18 points and grabbed 14 rebounds. She followed up that performance with 32 points and 16 points in an 89-84 overtime victory over Northwest Nazarene.

On the season, Wilt has recorded double-doubles in all eight games while averaging 20.6 points and 13.6 rebounds. She leads the conference in scoring, rebounds and blocked shots.

The men’s Player of the Week is senior Grayson Moyer of Humboldt State, the MVP of a tournament the Lumberjacks hosted last week.
