Basketball's Kevin Foster Named West Coast Conference Player of the Week

Santa Clara senior guard Kevin Foster, named to the 2012 West Coast Conference Preseason All-WCC a couple weeks ago, has been named the WCC Player of the Week in the opening week of the college basketball season. 

Foster opened the 2012-13 season in impressive fashion, scoring 27 points and dishing out nine assists with four rebounds and two steals with no turnovers in a Broncos victory over Simpson University -- a team playing its fifth game of the season. Foster sank seven three pointers, and was 9-of-17 shooting overall in 24 minutes of action vs. Simpson. 

The Bronco men's basketball team begins play in the CBE Classic this week, traveling to St. Louis for a Nov. 14 contest with the Billikens at 5 pm Pacific. The game will be shown live on Fox Sports Midwest TV and be aired at 7 pm Pacific on tape delay on the Broncos Radio Network at KDOW 1220 AM.

Foster is 18 points from breaking the school's long-time career points scored record held by Kurt Rambis since 1980.  Rambis scored 1,735 points from 1976-80.  To break the record Foster, currently No. 4 all-time with 1,718 points, will have to pass Brian Jones (No. 3 with 1,722 from 1996-01) and Harold Keeling (No. 2 with 1,732 from 1981-85) as well.  Note: the Santa Clara media guide for years published 1,725, 1,735 and 1,736 as Rambis' career totals (dating back to the 1981).  Looking back at his four-year totals, Rambis officially scored 1,735 career points (413 his freshman year, 371 his sophomore year, 422 his junior year and 529 his senior year).

Foster is No. 3 all-time in career three pointers in the West Coast Conference as well, already holding the school record with 318. He topped Steve Nash's school record of 263 threes (1992-96) early last season.  Foster needs 46 threes to break Jeff Fryer's WCC record from 1987-90 when he played at LMU and scored 363.  No. 2 is Jared Stohl who scored 336 from 2007-11 at Portland.
