Southern Oregon’s Kami Walk was voted the Rize Laboratory Cascade Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week on Monday after leading the No. 25-ranked Raiders to three consecutive home victories.
Walk, a 5-foot-11 junior forward who last year received NAIA All-America honorable mention, averaged 14 points and 9.7 rebounds as SOU defeated Oregon Tech (62-55), Warner Pacific (59-53) and Multnomah (66-55).
