Washington guard Kelsey Plum was named  the Pac-12 Player of the Week on Monday after leading the Huskies to victories over No. 17 UCLA and No. 25 USC over the weekend.

Plum, a junior, continues to lead the nation in scoring at 27.3 points per game.

The Huskies defeated No. 17 UCLA on Friday and No. 25 USC on Sunday. Plum scored 23 points in a 64-56 win over UCLA, then scored 32 in a 69-60 win over USC.

On Sunday, Plum also moved up the Huskies’ all-time scoring list, passing UW Hall of Famer Giuliana Mendiola. Plum is 50 points short of 2,000 for her career, having played in just 85 career games, which would make her one of the fastest in NCAA history, presuming she reaches that milestone.

The Huskies wrap up a five-game homestand against Washington State at 2 p.m. Saturday at Alaska Airlines Arena.
