The WAC Defensive Player of the Year, a first team all-WAC selection and a member of the all-tournament team at last week's WAC Tournament, Brown averages 15.1 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. She currently ranks 34th in the nation in assist-turnover ratio (1.82) and was named WAC Player of the Week five times this season.
A first-team all-WAC pick, Christensen led all players in scoring (20.6) and three-pointers per game (2.9) in WAC play. She currently ranks sixth nationally in free throw percentage (89.6) and 22nd in three-point field goal percentage (38.9).
