Utah Valley's Deijah Blanks has been named Western Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week for Feb. 15 through Feb. 21.

Blanks, a sophomore from San Diego (Mount Miguel HS), had a perfect night from the floor on Feb. 18, against Chicago State, going 10-for-10 from the field and 7-for-7 on free throws en route to 29 points and 10 rebounds in a 69-62 win over the Cougars. She followed that up with a 5-for-7 game at Missouri-Kansas City, scoring 13 points to help UVU get the 58-44 win. She averaged 21 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game and 2.0 steals per game as the Wolverines moved into a tie for second place in the WAC standings.

Blanks' perfect shooting night gave her the UVU school record for an individual player's field goal percentage with 100 percent with a minimum of 10 field goals made. The previous school record in field goal percentage was set by All-American Robyn Fairbanks (2006-09) with a 10-of-11 shooting night. Blanks is the first Wolverine to shoot a perfect night with a minimum of 10 field goals made. With the perfect shooting night, Blanks became just the fourth player this entire season in all of NCAA Division I to be perfect with 10 or more shots made (10-10 FG). Of those four perfect shooters, Blanks had the most free throws with 7-for-7, and she was the only one to make any 3-pointers with 2-for-2 on the night.
