March 5, 2012
IRVINE, Calif. - Senior Tipesa Moorer (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne HS) picked up the season's final Big West Women's Basketball Player of the Week award the conference office announced Monday afternoon.
It is Moorer's second weekly honor of the season as she previously earned the recognition on Jan. 23.
Last week, Moorer made her final showing at the Walter Pyramid one to remember, averaging a team-high 18.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, while making 63 percent of her shots.
In a narrow 73-68 loss to Pacific, Moorer went 7-for-13 from the floor for a team-high 17 points. She scored 10 of her 17 in the second half to help the 49ers erase a nine-point deficit as it was tied up at 61-61 with 3:33 left in the game. Moorer added eight rebounds and three steals against the Tigers.
Two days later, the 5-10 forward erupted for a game-high 20 points on a 10-for-14 shooting performance to lead LBSU to a 62-61 victory over Cal State Fullerton in the regular-season finale. It was Moorer's third 20-point performance of the season.
Moorer, who is averaging 13.3 points per game, was recently named to the All-Big West Second Team.
Long Beach State will be making its third-straight Big West Tournament appearance on Tuesday, March 6, when it heads to Cal State Northridge for a first-round game at 7 p.m.
