DeWees was also named MAAC Player of the Week by the conference as well as by College Sports Madness.

In the Bobcats' three games last week, she averaged 17 points and seven rebounds to lead Quinnipiac to three wins. The Westminster, Md., native shot an efficient 22-for-37 (59 percent) from the floor in the three-game stretch.

DeWees will take the court again with her team on Friday and Saturday at 4 p.m., at the People's United Center. Cheer on the Bobcats as they take on Siena on ESPN3 and ESPN+ respectively.
