Tuel named Pac-10 player of the week

Washington State University quarterback Jeff Tuel has been named the Pacific-10 Conference Offensive Player of the Week following the Cougars' 31-14 victory at Oregon State, the conference announced.

Tuel's leadership helped WSU snap a 16-game conference winless streak, dating back to the end of the 2008 season, and also earned WSU's first road win since the end of the 2007 season. The sophomore from Clovis, Calif., completed 10 of 15 passes for 157 yards and no interceptions, including a 33-yard touchdown pass to Marquess Wilson that gave the Cougars a 21-0 lead early in the third quarter. He also ran for a career-high 79 yards on 18 carries.

WSU converted 10 of 17 opportunities on third down with Tuel accounting for seven of those, four on the ground and three through the air. He engineered an offense that controlled the ball for more than 40 minutes during the contest.

Gray is WCC co-player of the week

Gonzaga senior guard Steven Gray is the West Coast Conference men's basketball Co-Player of the Week after his performance helped the Bulldogs to a pair of season-opening wins.

Gray shared the award with the University of Portland's Luke Sikma.

In the Bulldogs two season-opening wins, Gray averaged 21.0 points, 8.5 assists, 7.5 rebounds and 3.5 steals. He scored 25 points in a 117-72 season-opening win over Southern University, and came back with 17 points Sunday against IUPUI in the opening round of the CBE Classic Regional Round at the McCarthey Athletic Center to give him exactly 1,000 career points. He became the 33rd member of the 1,000-point club.

In addition to his 25 points Friday, he had a career-high nine assists, grabbed seven rebounds and had three steals in 28 minutes. Against IUPUI he also had eight rebounds, eight assists and four steals in the 86-56 win over IUPUI.

UI women end early signing period

MOSCOW - Idaho women's basketball coach Jon Newlee has finalized his early period signing class with the addition of Krissy Karr, a 5-foot-6 point guard from Lutheran High School in Orange, Calif.

Karr averaged 9.5 points, 4.0 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game for the Lancers as a junior last season, and earned All-Trinity League and All-CIF Section honors. She has also made the Dean's List all three years of high school.

"Krissy is great in the open floor and in an up-tempo game," Newlee said. "She's great at pushing the ball up and she has excellent vision as well. I think she is a really good passer and an excellent outside shooter and she gives us great perimeter defense."
