Dixon named Pac-10 player of the week

UCLA sophomore forward Jasmine Dixon has picked up the honor this week for the first time. Here’s the list of this season’s players of the week:

Nov. 16 – Nnemkadi Ogwumike, Stanford
Nov. 23 – Nicole Canepa, Oregon
Nov. 30 – Kayla Pedersen, Stanford/
Dec. 7 – Amanda Johnson, Oregon
Dec. 14 – Nnemkadi Ogwumike, Stanford
Dec. 21 – Kayla Pedersen, Stanford
Dec. 28 – Sami Whitcomb, Washington
Jan. 4 – Taylor Lilley, Oregon
Jan. 11 – Nnemkadi Ogwumike, Stanford
Jan. 18 – Davellyn Whyte, Arizona
Jan. 25 – Alexis Gray-Lawson, California
Feb. 1 – Markel Walker, UCLA
Feb. 8 – April Cook, Washington State
Feb. 15 – Jayne Appel, Stanford
Feb. 22 – Jayne Appel, Stanford
Mar. 1 – Jasmine Dixon, UCLA

Looks like Ogwumike is the most repeat offender. It will be interesting next year when her sister gets to Stanford.


  1. After watching Jasmine the last couple of games, but especially against the Ducks, I said she darn well better be the POW for the Pac 10. SHe has been awesome.

    I am thinking Nikki Caldwell should seriously be considered for Pac 10 Coach of the Year. The team was slated to finish 4th or 5th in the Pac. And could have easily ended tied with Stanford for the Pac 10 title had they made some clutch freethrows in the SC and Stanford games.

    Either way it looks like they will get a chance to "dance."
