CSUN women’s basketball Channon Fluker has won her second consecutive Big West Player of the week award; topping off a Matador’s season-high three game winning streak.

The 6’4″ freshman out of Maranatha High School established her dominance on both sides of the ball against conference rivals UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton averaging 27.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 4.0 blocks per game. She also had a 71.4 shooting percentage from the field during both victories.

On Jan 28. Fluker finished with a career-high 33-points against Irvine, followed by a 21-point outing and 5 blocks against Fullerton two days later.

Fluker is averaging 10.7 points and 8.4 rebounds through 18 games. She has only started six games this year which will likely change after her recent performances.

The lady Matadors look to extend the win streak to four games.

Thursday they will be traveling to Long Beach State for another inter-conference match up.
