Candice Wiggins Named Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Nov. 17, 2007

Senior Candice Wiggins (San Diego, Calif./La Jolla Country Day) of the Stanford women's basketball team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Dec. 9-16.

Wiggins scored a season-high 35 points on 11-for-22 shooting (including 4-for-9 on three-pointers) Sunday in No. 5/4 Stanford’s 87-63 win over No. 10/10 Baylor. On top of her offensive showing, Wiggins turned in a solid defensive effort, making four steals and blocking a pair of shots. For her performance, Wiggins was also named the U.S. Bank Pac-10 Player of the Week on Monday.

This is Wiggins’ first Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor and the third for the women’s basketball team of the 2007-08 season. Wiggins and the rest of the Stanford women’s basketball team return to action Tuesday, Dec. 18 as they take on New Mexico at The Pit in Albuquerque in a 6 p.m. PT contest. The Cardinal will then return home to Maples Pavilion for a highly-anticipated showdown with No. 1/1 Tennessee Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. PT.

Also nominated: Foluke Akinradewo (Volleyball), Landry Fields (Men’s Basketball).
