Pool averaged a double-double this past week with 15.5 points and 11.0 rebounds, while leading the Wolverines to victories over Washington (75-68) and UC Santa Barbara (57-51).  On the week, the senior forward shot .600 (12-20) from the field and .417 (5-12) from behind the arc. 

Pool led Michigan to an upset win at UC Santa Barbara with 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting and 10 boards as the Wolverines snapped the Gauchos' 12-game home win streak.  U-M became just the second visiting team to win in the Thunderdome in UCSB's last 41 home games.  Pool also drew the defensive assignment against All-America candidate Kristen Mann and held her to a 5-of-15 performance from the field.  Earlier in the week Pool posted her first double-double of the season with 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with 12 boards in the win over Washington. 

Pool, who started her 75th career game against UCSB, earns her third career Player of the Week award as she was previously honored on December 22, 2003 and December 23, 2002.
