Jahlil Tripp, Sr. G, Pacific

Tripp tallied eight points, 20 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal against USF on Feb. 6. These efforts marked the first 20-rebound game by a WCC player since USF’s Cole Dickerson pulled down 20 against Montana on Nov. 30, 2012. It also was the first 20-rebound performance in a WCC contest since BYU’s Brandon Davies recorded 22 versus San Diego on Dec. 31, 2011.

Following up this performance with another dominant night on the hardwood, Tripp poured in 24 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and added two assists and one steal in Pacific’s nail-biting, 79-78, victory over Pepperdine.
