The Westerville, Ohio native pulled down 32 rebounds in a 76-67 win over Point Park University Dec. 7. She also racked up 13 points for a double-double, as well as four blocks and three assists. The performance earned her River States Conference Player of the Week, which placed her in the national pool for recognition.
