Dumiak Tabbed AU GEICO Student-Athlete of the Week

WASHINGTON – American University women's basketball player Jen Dumiak has been chosen as the AU GEICO Student-Athlete of the Week for the fourth time this season.

Dumiak, a senior guard from Carlsbad, Calif., guided the Eagles to their first Patriot League tournament title in program history and first NCAA Tournament berth, earning Tournament MVP honors.

In last week's 60-53 semifinal victory over Navy, Dumiak finished with a team-high 16 points and five assists. Meanwhile, she scored 24 points and dished out six assists in the Eagles' 66-50 title victory over Lehigh. Dumiak now holds AU's single-season assist record with 197.

American, which has won a program-record 24 games this season, will find out the destination of its first-round NCAA matchup this evening, during the NCAA Selection Show at 7 p.m. on ESPN.
