COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -­ New Mexico junior Amy Beggin and UNLV senior Shamela Hampton have been named the Mountain West Conference Women's Basketball Co-Players of the Week.

Beggin averaged 18.7 points last week and helped the Lobos go 3-0 with victories over Utah Valley, William and Mary and Nebraska. Beggin, who has scored in double figures every game this season, scored 17 points and a season-high nine rebounds against Utah Valley and a season-high 20 points against William and Mary. She went on to lead all scorers against Nebraska with 19 points. The Maplewood, Minn., native dished out an average of five assists per game, was perfect from the free-throw line (13-of-13), shot 44.7 percent from the field (17-of-38) and, as a guard, averaged six rebounds in each game last week.
