DIVISION I PLAYER OF THE WEEK

In a 74-73 overtime upset of No. 6 Chipola College (Fla.), Scott was 8-for-11 from the field for 20 points and recorded a game-high 16 rebounds to go along with four steals and two blocks. The sophomore followed up with a game-high 30 points and 19 rebounds in a 67-62 win over Pensacola State College (Fla.).

DIVISION II PLAYER OF THE WEEK  

Ajha Edwards – Pima Community College, Ariz.
Center – Tombstone, Ariz. – Tombstone High School

The Aztecs went 1-1 in two games last week and were just shy of knocking off a top five opponent thanks to Edwards’ tremendous play off the bench.

Against No. 4 Mesa CC (Ariz.), the sophomore recorded another double-double with 20 points and 22 rebounds in an 86-81 double-overtime loss. Despite starting in less than half of the Aztecs’ games this season, Edwards is averaging a double-double with 14 points and 13.2 rebounds per game.


DIVISION III PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Regina Steele – Sullivan County Community College, N.Y.
Center – Ellenville, N.Y. – Ellenville High School

Cruising to five victories in six days last week, the Generals gave their opponents a steady dose of Steele. The freshman averaged 21.8 points, 18.2 rebounds, 4.4 steals and 5.6 blocks per game last week, recording double-doubles in all five contests. Steele’s best overall performance came in a 62-50 win over Borough of Manhattan CC (N.Y.) where she racked up 20 points, 18 rebounds and nine blocks.
