Benz On The Boards

Kate Benz's Achievements in 2005-06:

Seeing Double: For the second consecutive year, Kate Benz ended the regular season leading the Pac-10 in rebounding...she is the first player in WSU history to lead the conference in that category...Benz concluded the regular season with a 9.2 rebound per game average...Benz tallied seven double-doubles this season, increasing her career total in that category to 18...Benz recorded eight double-doubles as a sophomore and three as a freshman...Benz just missed her eighth double-double of the season with 10 points and eight rebounds at Stanford, Feb. 25...that snapped a string of three consecutive double-doubles...Benz did complete the regular season with four consecutive double-digits scoring games, increasing her season total to 14...for her career, Benz, who is second on the team in scoring with a 9.9 points a game average, has registered 38 double-digit scoring games.

Moving Up The Career Charts...: Kate Benz's career rebound total stands at 689, fourth all-time in school history...with 11 rebounds, Benz will become just the fourth player in school history to reach the 700-rebound plateau...next up on the list for Benz is Jenni Ruff, who pulled down 727 rebounds from 1993-96...the all-time career rebounding leader in WSU history is Cassandra Overby, who pulled down 875 rebounds from 1981-84....in addition, with 806 career points, Benz has cracked the school's top 20 list in that category.

...And Single-Season List: If the season ended today, Benz's 248 rebounds would place her sixth on the school's single-season rebounding list...last year, Benz grabbed 254 rebounds, fifth best in school history...the single-season school record is 294 rebounds by Jennifer Grey (1975).

Player Of The Week: For the first time in nine years, a Washington State Cougar earned Pacific-10 Conference Player of the Week accolades...Kate Benz earned the honor for the week of Feb. 13-19 conference commissioner Tom Hansen announced, Feb. 20...the honor is the first for Washington State since Jan. 27, 1997 when Jade Hyett earned the award...it is the 10th all-time selection for WSU... Benz averaged 15 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, 1.5 blocks and 0.5 steals in two games as the Cougars split their home weekend series with Oregon and Oregon State...for the week, Benz shot 52.1 percent from the field (12-of-23) and 75 percent (6-of-8) from the foul line...in the 68-53 win over Oregon, Feb. 18, Benz produced game-highs in points (17) and rebounds (12) in leading WSU to its eighth win of the season and its first over Oregon since the 2001 season...she shot 54.5 percent from the floor (6-of-11) and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the charity stripe...in the first half, Benz nearly pulled down as many rebounds (eight) as the entire Ducks team (10)...two days earlier vs. Oregon State, Benz recorded a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.
