Bulger Grabs Another Award

West Virginia University sophomore Meg Bulger was named Big East player of the week, the league announced today.

The 6-foot forward averaged 33 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals in West Virginia's two games last week. In a loss against Marshall, the Pittsburgh native scored a career-high 36 points and followed that up with a 30-point performance in a 64-56 conference win over Seton Hall.

For the week Bulger made 21 of 40 field goal attempts (52.5 percent) and shot 18 of 20 from the free throw line (90 percent). She accounted for 47.1 percent of WVU's point total by scoring 66 of the Mountaineers' 144 points. Bulger became the first West Virginia player in 24 years to record consecutive 30-point games and she currently leads the Big East with an average of 21.2 points per game

The next closest player is Boston College's Jessalyn Deveny with an average of 18.9 points per game.

Bulger has been named Big East player of the week three times so far this season.

West Virginia, 11-4, 2-2, returns to action this Thursday when the Mountaineers play at No. 14-ranked Boston College in a match-up of the league's top two scorers.
