Kent State Women's Basketball's Krewson Named MAC Female Scholar Athlete of the Week
Junior guard averaged 17.5 points and 10 rebounds last week.
CLEVELAND -- Kent State junior women's basketball guard Trisha Krewson (Sandusky, Ohio) has been named the Mid-American Conference Female Scholar Athlete of the Week, the conference office announced Saturday (Nov. 26).
The MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week honor is presented to a MAC male and female student-athlete who has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and performs well during the week's competition. The winners are selected by a group of the conference's faculty athletic representatives.
A double-major in English and Spanish carrying a 4.00 grade-point average, Krewson has gotten her blue and gold career off to a hot start, including two big performances last week for the women's basketball team. She averaged 17.5 points, 10 rebounds and 2.5 assists as the Golden Flashes (1-2) finished the second week of the 2011-12 season with a split. The transfer from Bucknell totaled a game-high 18 points in Kent State's loss at Robert Morris last Tuesday (Nov. 15). She also led the Flashes with eight rebounds (two offensive, six defensive) and three steals. She followed that effort up with her first double-double as a member of the Golden Flashes, tallying a team-high 17 points -- 12 of which came in the first half – to go along with a career-high 12 rebounds (one offensive, nine defensive) and five assists to lead the team as Kent State edged Morehead State, 65-64, last Friday (Nov. 18) in the squad's home opener at the M.A.C. Center.
The Flashes host 2010-11 WNIT qualifier St. Bonaventure next Wednesday (Nov. 30) at 7 p.m. at the M.A.C. Center.
