UW's Kelsey Plum collects Pac-12 player of the week honors

After pouring in a career-high 57 points on Saturday and capturing the NCAA all-time scoring lead over the weekend, the Washington Huskies star received the Pac-12 player of the week award Monday. She is a great role model, great player, great person.

Senior guard Kelsey Plum celebrates after consecutive and-one drives during the 3rd period. It ties former Stanford standout Chiney Ogwumike (2012-13) for the second most ever in a season. Her total of 3,397 points is four better than previous record-holder Jackie Stiles, who played at Missouri State from 1998-2001.

Plum made a decision to get it all at home in front of the Washington faithful, dropping a record 57 points in the Huskies' 84-77 regular-season finale victory.

The 57 points by Plum were the fifth-most in a game in women's Division I history (Division I women's basketball records date to 1982).

Plum gave herself a shot at setting the all-time mark with a big third quarter where she scored 16 points, giving her 38 for the game and needing another 16 in the fourth quarter to pass Stiles.

On Saturday, Plum also broke the Pac-12 and Washington single-season scoring record that she set last season. Plum has scored 139 points in six NCAA tournament games.

Utah: The Utes must wait for the final day of the regular season to see results of other games before knowing what its seed will be for the conference tournament.
