PORTLAND, Ore. – Following a pair of career-high scoring performances in hard-fought road victories, Alaska Anchorage senior Autummn Williams was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week on Monday for the second straight time and the fourth time this season.

The 5-10 forward totaled 65 points on 60 percent shooting, nine rebounds, eight assists, seven steals and just four turnovers in a team-high 67 minutes, helping UAA beat Northwest Nazarene 78-70 and Central Washington 69-48, and becoming the first Seawolf in the GNAC era (since 2001-02) to score at least 30 points in back-to-back games.

On Thursday in Idaho, the Rochester, N.Y., native scored a career-high 34 points on 14-of-23 shooting, dished three assists and snagged five steals to power 2nd-ranked UAA to its biggest comeback of the season, erasing a 45-35 second-quarter deficit against the Crusaders.

On Saturday in Ellensburg, Williams poured in 31 points on 11-of-19 accuracy, plus five assists and five rebounds to help UAA to its 19th straight win, along with program-record streaks 19 straight road wins and 16 consecutive league road wins.

A one-year transfer from Div. I Little Rock, Williams is just the fourth women’s basketball player in GNAC history – since 2001-02 – to earn four player-of-the-week awards in the same season, joining UAA’s Rebecca Kielpinski (2006-07) and Montana State Billings’s Alira Carpenter (2008-09).

It is also the third straight GNAC weekly award for the Seawolves, along with Kiki Robertson’s honor for Jan. 23-29.

The Seawolves (23-1, 16-0 GNAC) return home this week for their final regular-season games at the Alaska Airlines Center, starting with Thursday’s 7 p.m. contest vs. Saint Martin’s. On Saturday, UAA will honor its seniors in pregame ceremonies prior to a special 5 p.m. tip time against longtime rival Seattle Pacific.
