Callie Bourne‘s Idaho State University Bengals have just concluded their stellar regular season in style – as the Big Sky Conference regular season champions. During their last fortnight of play, Callie put in two outstanding performances, including a game where she topped points, rebounds and assists (22 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists). As a result, she was named the Idaho State University Student Athlete of the Week.
The Bengals finished their regular season with a 19-3 record (15-2 in Conference play). They begin the Big Sky Championship Tournament this week. Callie is averaging 10.2 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.
Stuart Phair‘s Sage College Gators finally took to the court for the first game of their truncated season. Play will be complete by the first week in April.
John Mapiou had a season-topping game last week at Western Texas, scoring in double-figures (12 points) and achieving a career high 5 steals.
Issie Bourne‘s University of Nebraska Huskers have survived Round One of the Big Ten Championship.
“Bourne, a 6-2 sophomore from Canberra, Australia, earned the first conference accolades of her career with her honorable-mention selection. In her first season as a starter, Bourne averaged 13.9 points (25th Big Ten) and 7.9 rebounds (6th Big Ten) while adding 2.3 assists and 1.1 blocks. Bourne was named the Big Ten Player of the Week and the College Sports Madness National Player of the Week (Feb. 22). She was also recently named one of 20 semifinalists for the NCAA Division I International Player of the Year Award.” (Huskers News)
