Washington women’s basketball freshman guard Elle Ladine has been named Pac-12 freshman of the week.
Ladine receives her first weekly honor from the Pac-12 after the Huskies completed the sweep of the Bay Area schools over the weekend in Alaska Airlines Arena, including a big win over then-No. 2 Stanford.
The win over Stanford was the first time since 2016 the Huskies defeated the Cardinal, the same season the Huskies got their last Top-5 win (No. 5 Maryland).
On Friday vs. California, Ladine tied her career high with 10 points, also recording three rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes. On Sunday vs. Stanford, Ladine came off the bench to lead all scorers with a career-high 21 points, shooting 47% (8 of 17) from the field.
