The Pacific West Conference announced their All-PacWest teams and awards with Abby Spurgin collecting both Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year honors.
Spurgin was spectacular as the graduate transfer from West Texas A&M averaged 22.1 ppg, tied for fourth most in the country and best in the conference. Spurgin’s 530 points the second most in school history for a single season, but enough to put her in the all-time top-10 scorers of HPU women’s basketball. Spurgin collected five total Player of the Week recognitions with four offensive and one defensive.
The Sharks finished sixth in the regular season and now have a chance at the PacWest Conference title which begins Friday with a first-round matchup with Concordia at 12:30 p.m. HT.
