SPOKANE, Wash. -

Gonzaga center Kelly Olynyk is the West Coast Conference Player of the Week for the second time this season.

Olynyk shot 19-of-30 from the field for 63.3 percent. He averaged 21.5 points in two games last week, helping the Zags beat Saint Mary's and San Francisco – both games on the road. He also grabbed 8 rebounds per game.

Against Saint Mary's, Olynyk scored 17 points and 7 rebounds. Then, against the Dons, he scored 26 and had 9 rebounds, as Gonzaga snapped a three-game losing streak at USF.
