Jill Barta Named WCC Player Of The Week
Jan. 29, 2018

SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named Jill Barta its Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for January 29, 2018.

Jill Barta led the West Coast Conference-leading Zags in points and rebounds in both contests over the past week. Against Portland, she posted 21 points and seven rebounds, and two days later she was one rebound short of a double-double at San Francisco with 24 points and nine boards. She led the Zags with three steals at USF and dished four assists against the Pilots. She blocked a shot in each game.

On the week, Barta shot 58.8 percent from the field, averaging 22.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game in only 22.5 minutes per game for the Zags, who are unbeaten in WCC action.

This marked Barta’s third selection this season and fifth of her career. She is the first Zag to accomplish that feat since Courtney Vandersloot was tabbed three times in 2010-11. Stephanie Hawk was honored five times in 2006-07, the school record. Currently, Barta leads the Zags in points per game (18.5), rebounds per game (8.5), free throw percentage (.840), and double-doubles (8). She is second in the conference in points per game, fifth in rebounds, second in free throw percentage, fourth in field goal percentage (.494), and first in double-doubles.
