Kate Mallete has been named the PACWEST women's basketball athlete of the week.
In her Blues debut on Jan. 17 and 18 against Douglas College, the Langley native scored 34 points including 24 in a road win.
Mallette was 9-for-9 from the free-throw line and also drained three three-pointers. She grabbed 13 rebounds, had two blocks, two assists and a steal as the Blues swept the pair of games against Douglas.
Mallette and the Blues are back in action Saturday and Sunday as the Vancouver Island University Mariners pay a visit to CapU. Start times for the women's games are 6 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
