WASHINGTON – After leading the American women's basketball team to a pair of victories over top-notch non-conference opponents, senior guard Jen Dumiak has been selected as the GEICO AU Student-Athlete of the Week.
American went 2-0 at the South Point Thanksgiving Shootout in Las Vegas this past weekend, earning wins over Gonzaga and Oregon, both of which received votes in last week's national polls.
Dumiak averaged 12.5 points, 8.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds in the two contests, while also shooting 91.7 percent from the foul line and registering a 8.0 assist-to-turnover ratio. Her breakout game came against Oregon, as she recorded a career-high 22 points and 10 assists, while also finishing just one rebound shy of a triple-double.
The Eagles are back in action on Wednesday, when they host UMBC in a 7 p.m. contest.
