The Mountain West Conference finally recognized a CSU women’s basketball player on Monday, naming senior guard Angie Gorton the MWC player of the week.
Gorton recorded her second and third double doubles of the season with a 16-point, 11-rebound performance against San Diego State on Thursday and a 13-point, 10-rebound showing against UNLV on Saturday, helping the Rams win both games.
Gorton is currently No. 8 in the conference in scoring with 14.3 points per game and No. 13 in the MWC with an average of 5.8 boards per game. Her three double doubles on the season ties her with teammate Elizabeth English and SDSU’s Atim Otii for fourth in the conference.
This is Gorton’s, who is a native of Tulsa, Okla., first honor this season and second of her career.
