Ellen Nystrom named Mountain West Women’s Basketball Player of the Week

Following a dominant season-opening performance against Omaha, Colorado State senior guard Ellen Nystrom has been named the Mountain West Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Nystrom showed spectators why she was named 2016-2017 MW Preseason Women’s Basketball Player of the year. She scored 22 points against Omaha in the opening round of the Preseason WNIT. The Swedish scoring threat also shot well from the floor, going 8-for-14 from the field (57.1 percent).

The 2015-2016 MW Women’s Basketball Player of the Year was impressive from all angles of the game against Omaha. She finished the game with six assists and was a perfect 4-for-4 from the free throw line. Nystrom was much more carefull with the ball against Omaha than she was in the exhibition contest against Pueblo. After turning the ball over four times in the exhibition, she only turned the ball over once against Omaha.

To cap off her impressive night, the 6-foot 1-inch guard notched a career-high three offensive rebounds. She had five total rebounds in the game.

This marks the second time Nystrom has been given the MW Player of the Week honor. Her first time doing so was on March 6, 2016, after scoring 13 against Air Force and 16 against Fresno State.

The Rams, who are receiving eight votes in the current AP poll, will square off against No. 17 ranked Washington in the second round of the Preseason WNIT. Tip-off is set for 8:00 p.m. MT at Alaska Airlines Arena in Seattle, Washington.
