Liz Braun of Centre College has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference women's basketball player of the week for her performances in Centre's wins last weekend.
Braun, a 6-1 junior center, averaged 12 points, 17.5 rebounds, and 6.5 blocks in the two games. Against Rhodes, she had a double-double with 18 points and 18 rebounds along with five blocks and three assists. In Centre's upset of Hendrix, she grabbed 17 rebounds and blocked eight shots.
"These are Liz's best games by far since she's been here," Centre coach Jennifer Ruff said. "I'm most proud of her rebounding because that was the difference between winning and losing against two very good teams."
For the season, Braun is averaging 8.1 points and 5.1 rebounds on the season, and she ranks second in the conference in blocked shots (2.72).
