Phillips averaged 17.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.5 assists as Loras won games vs. Buena Vista and Wartburg last week. She scored 15 points, pulled down eight boards and had four assists in the 69-54 win over the Beavers. In the 71-70 win over the Knights, she hit seven of nine shots from the floor and sank the game-winning free throw with eight seconds remaining to cap a 20-point, seven-assist, four-rebound afternoon.
Camden averaged 26.0 points, shot 54 percent from 3-point range and was perfect from the foul line on the week as she led Eureka to a 2-0 week with an 80-50 win at MacMurray and a 72-66 win vs. Greenville. She shot 5-for-11 from beyond the arc en route to 21 points vs. MacMurray, then went one step better at home, shooting 8-for-13 from 3-point range, helping her score 31 vs. the Panthers.
Mesaris had yet another big week, averaging 26.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks as the Lady Royals won twice and built a two-game lead in the Landmark with three games remaining. She had 22 points, four rebounds and a block as Scranton held off Moravian, 67-64, on Wednesday. In the win, she became the program's all-time leader in career free throws made. On Saturday, Mesaris had a season-high 31 points on 12-for-17 from the field while pulling down eight rebounds and making two blocks in an 81-47 win at Juniata.
Leslie scored 20 of her career-high-tying 28 points in the second half Friday night as Rochester upended No. 8 NYU, 72-63. The Yellowjackets rallied from a 13-point second half deficit. Her 13 rebounds helped Rochester to a 54-38 rebound advantage and her six assists against the Violets were a career high. In the last 49 seconds, Leslie hit seven of eight from the foul line to nail down the victory. Leslie was Rochester's only double figure scorer against Brandeis on Sunday. The win over NYU was the 300th Rochester victory for coach Jim Scheible, now in his 16th year at UR.
Schulz averaged 29.0 points, 17.5 rebounds, and 6.0 blocks per game last week as the Warriors won twice to take over sole possession of first place in the NACC. She came within one block of her third triple-double of the season Tuesday and poured in 31 points Saturday, the third time this season Schulz has scored 30 or more points in a game.
Walton-Moss averaged nearly a triple-double last week, recording 29.5 points, 14 rebounds and 8.5 assists. In a win over Baptist Bible, the senior notched his sixth triple double of the season with 36 points on 16-for-22 from the floor, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Walton-Moss nearly had another on Saturday, leading Cabrini to a win at Keystone with 23 points, a season-high 17 rebounds and seven assists.
Green had an outstanding week shooting and scoring as the Red Hawks split a pair of NJAC contests. Green had 23 points, two assists and four steals as MSU nearly pulled off an upset of No. 25 William Paterson before falling 70-67. Three days later he scored a season-high 34 points, 21 in the second half, along with a pair of rebounds and assist as MSU snapped a seven-game losing streak with an 88-85 win at Rutgers-Camden. Green hit seven times from behind the arc, the third-best single-game total in MSU history. Green shot 11-for-18 from 3-point range on the week.
Farley averaged 28.5 points and 8.0 rebounds per game as he sparked the Comets to a pair of ASC wins. Farley opened the week with his eighth double-double of the season with 21 points and 12 rebounds as UTD knocked off conference leader Hardin-Simmons on the road Monday night. Farley then scored 36 points and added eight rebounds as the Comets outlasted Louisiana College (92-88) in overtime Thursday night. Farley's performance against LC marked the second time this season he has scored more than 30 points. He shot 13-for-24 from 3-point range.
Hamlet had a week to remember for the Mountaineers, helping them stay perfect in NECC action with a pair of wins. The junior first dropped a career-high 38 points in just 17 minutes Tuesday against Newbury and then followed up with 28 Saturday against Mitchell; that gave Hamlet an even 1,000 points. He shot 66.7 percent from the floor over the week to average 33 points per game, going 18-20 from the free throw line across the two contests. He added eight boards and 2.5 steals per game, pulling down 10 rebounds Saturday for his sixth double-double of the season.
Martin averaged 19.0 points and 13.5 rebounds while leading Luther to a pair of victories. He posted a 16-point, 16-rebound double-double in Luther's 58-51 win over Simpson on Feb. 4, then capped his week by hitting the game-winning shot with five seconds remaining in a 66-64 win over league-leading Buena Vista on Feb. 7. Martin finished with 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting, including four 3-pointers, and 11 rebounds against the Beavers.
