Feb. 15, 2010
ST. LOUIS - For the third time in the last four weeks, Illinois State senior forward Ashleen Bracey was named Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week, as announced by the league office Monday. Bracey led the Redbirds to two wins last week with her highest two-game scoring average of the season.
Bracey helped ISU extend its winning streak to 11 games with a pair of victories, leading the team in scoring (22.0 ppg), rebounding (7.0 rpg) and field goal percentage (.621). She logged her sixth double-double of the season with 18 points and 11 rebounds against Wichita State. She also tied her season-high with three blocks. She then scored a career-high 26 points for the second time this season against Missouri State, making a career-high 11 field goals. Bracey also became the 25th player in Illinois State history to score 1,000 points in her career.
In Valley play, Bracey is now tied for second in scoring (16.8 ppg) and rebounding (9.3 rpg) and fourth in field goal percentage (.542). All six of her double-doubles have come in league play.
Bracey's three MVC Player of the Week awards this season are tied for the most with Missouri State guard Jaleshia Roberson. She now has four awards in her career.
