In a 69-54 loss to first place TCNJ, she produced a game-high 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting, adding seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals. In a record-setting 83-66 upset of Rutgers-Camden, Bacon went 6-of-9 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line, en route to a 16-point, 12-rebound double-double.

Julie Galauner
Galauner led Aurora to a 2-0 week, averaging 25 points while shooting 52 percent from the field and 12-for-23 from beyond the three-point arc. She averaged nine rebounds, five steals, and four assists on the week. In a victory over Marian, Galauner had a double-double of 21 points and 11 rebounds while then scoring 29 with six rebounds, steals and assists in a win over Illinois Tech.

Rachael Windhausen
Windhausen led the Lakers in two hard-fought overtime losses, setting and resetting a career-high for points with 24 and then 34. In Friday's 70-69 overtime loss to Potsdam she added 16 rebounds and played all 45 minutes. In the double-overtime loss to Plattsburgh on Saturday, 83-76, she posted 34 while grabbing 21 boards; she was 12-for-15 shooting from the field, a perfect 10-for-10 from the charity stripe, while recording two blocked shots.

Bryce Frank
Frank tied the SCAC career double-doubles record as the Roos went 2-0, averaging 22 points and 14 rebounds per game while notching the 51st and 52nd double-doubles of her career. The senior drained 16 points and grabbed 16 boards while handing out four assists in a win over Johnson & Wales-Denver to open up the weekend, and followed that up with a 27-point, 12-rebound performance in a win over Colorado College in her final game in Hughey Gym. Frank also shot 68% from the field in the two victories.

Hannah Spaulding
Spaulding pulled down a personal-best 21 rebounds and scored 24 of her career-high 32 points in the second half to help secure a share of the regular season MIAC championship for the nationally-ranked Tommies with a win over Augsburg last Saturday. The senior center finished the game 12-for-15 from the floor and 8-for-12 from the line. Spaulding also totaled 14 points and four rebounds in just 19 minutes of action in a victory over St. Olaf three days prior.



Aston Francis
Francis tied Wheaton's single-game record for 3-pointers on Saturday with 10 treys in an 82-71 victory at No. 13 North Central (Ill.) in which he scored 49 points, shooting 63% from the field and 53 percent from 3-point range; he also grabbed five rebounds in the win. Francis scored 35 points with seven 3-pointers in a loss at No. 4 Augustana. He added eight rebounds, four assists, and four steals against the Vikings and is rewriting the record books all over the place.

Brian Cameron
Cameron extended his streak of 30-plus point scoring games to three with a pair of high-scoring performances during Wesley's 2-0 week with wins vs. Cabrini and Gwynedd Mercy. Cameron averaged 33 points per game with eight rebounds and five assists in two games. From the field, Cameron was 20-of-29 shooting, including going 5-for-8 from three. He was also 20-of-25 in free-throw attempts. During the second half of Wesley's win on Saturday over conference-leading Gwynedd Mercy, Cameron was a perfect 10-for-10 from the field, 3-of-3 from beyond the arc and 6-of-7 from the free-throw line.

Booker Coplin
Coplin averaged 31 points and eight rebounds per-game in three games this week. He scored 37 points, including a 14-of-15 effort from the free-throw line, with six rebounds, two steals, and two blocks against St. John's on Monday, then scored 35 points on 13-of-19 from the field, with 11 rebounds in the Auggies' 94-88 win over Gustavus on Wednesday. On Saturday, Coplin was saddled with foul trouble that limited him to just 27 minutes of playing time, but he still scored 21 points with eight rebounds, and provided the game-winning three-point play with 5.8 seconds left in Augsburg's 88-86 win at No. 5 St. Thomas.

Rayshon Ward
Ward averaged 28 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal, and three blocked shots while shooting 62 percent from the floor, 50 percent from behind the arc and 100% at the free throw line this week.
