The good times just keep on rolling for the Lady Lions. On Monday, they clinched at least a share of the Big Ten title. On Tuesday, guard Maggie Lucas earned her first Big Ten Player of the Week award.
It’s a bit surprising Lucas has never won the award before. She’s been in the Big Ten’s top five players in points per game almost all season, and she set the record for most 3-pointers from a Big Ten player last year.
Still, this is a first for the sophomore. She won the award on the heels of a week in which she averaged 20.0 points and 6.0 rebounds per game in a pair of big wins over then-No. 17 Purdue and No. 8 Ohio State.
The guard is having a great season. She’s currently fourth in the Big Ten in points per game with 19.1 and second in 3-pointers made with 67.
