San Jose, Calif. – In San Jose State’s 107-84 win over the Nevada Wolf Pack, senior point guard Dezz Ramos, had one of the best games in SJSU women’s basketball history. She scored 40 points, had eight assists and got five steals, and for that performance has been selected the Mountain West Player of the Week. The announcement came from the conference office in Colorado Springs, Colo., Monday afternoon.
Ramos’ 40 points are a career-high and was a point from equaling the program’s single-game record of 41 points, set by Hulett Brooks against Sacramento State on December 10, 1993. She shot 58.3 percent (14-of-24) from the field, including 54.5 percent (6-of-11) from beyond the three-point line and was 6-for-6 from the line.
She joins Brooks as the only Spartans in the 43-year history of the program to score 40 points in a game. In addition, her total ties for the second most by a Mountain West player in a conference game since the conference’s inception in 1999. The Spartans 107-point total ties the record for points by one team in a MW conference game.
Her eight assists led to 20 points and the team scored 10 points off her five steals.
With the Spartans holding a 56-48 lead at the half, the West Valley, Utah native and 15th leading scorer in the nation opened the third quarter with three consecutive three-pointers that sparked a 19-3 run which blew the game open. She scored 11 points in the surge, 17 in the quarter to put the game out of reach.
This is Ramos’ second Mountain West Player of the Week honor of the year and her career.
The Spartans return to action on Wednesday, January 4 against the Colorado State Rams in Fort Collins, Colorado. The teams are scheduled to tip off at 7:00 p.m. (MT).
