SAN BRUNO, Calif. – Gonzaga’s Corey Kispert was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday.

Kispert helped No. 2/1 Gonzaga to its 11th and 12th straight wins this past week. He averaged 17.5 points on 50 percent shooting from the field. The junior made seven of his 12 three-point attempts (58.3 percent) and six of his seven shots from the free-throw line (85.7 percent). He grabbed eight rebounds during the week, and dished out three assists.

Against BYU Saturday, Kispert scored 19 points and made four-three pointers. The win was the Zags’ 33rd-straight regular season win over a conference opponent, breaking the league’s 27-year old record. It was also GU’s 34th consecutive victory at home, the longest active streak in the nation. Kispert is currently 10th in the WCC averaging 14.4 points per game. His 53 made three-pointers this season ranks second in the conference.
