By Doug Fitzgerald published December 8, 2004

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs forward Emily Jenkins was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference West Division Player of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday.

The sophomore forward averaged 12 points, 10 rebounds and 3.5 steals per game as the Mountain Lions went 2-0 this past week.

Jenkins had 11 points and nine rebounds to go along with three steals in the Mountain Lions' 65-42 defeat of Colorado College on Nov. 30. She added 13 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and was 6-10 from the floor in CU-Colorado Springs' 58-37 win over Grand Canyon (Ariz.) on Dec. 1.

“Emilyâ€TMs consistently playing hard and has adjusted very well to our system,” said assistant coach Chris Smith. “Sheâ€TMs very unselfish and shows in her numbers.”

For the season, Jenkins is averaging 7.6 points, 7.0 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game. Those numbers a skewed a bit because she played only five minutes in the Mountain Lionsâ€TM 86-36 pounding of Johnson & Wales on Monday.

CU-Colorado Springs is now 3-2 going into its first RMAC game at Fort Hays State on Thursday
