Jan. 15, 2007

Amanda Brown, Penn State
Sr., 6-4, F/C, Kennett Square, Pa./Unionville

Brown led the Lady Lions to a near upset win over No. 6/8 Ohio State (63-61) as she notched her sixth double-double of the season with game-highs of 20 points and 14 rebounds while playing all 40 minutes.  The Penn State senior also blocked a career-high seven shots in the loss, which tied for third all-time on the school's single-game chart.  In Sunday's 65-51 win over Michigan, which the Lady Lions avenged from last week's loss, Brown posted her career-high seventh double-double of the season with 12 points and 14 rebounds. She also dished out four assists to reach 100 for her career and had two blocked shots and a steal in the victory.  In a 1-1 week for Penn State, Brown averaged 16.0 points on 46 percent shooting, 14.0 rebounds, 4.5 blocks, 2.5 assists and 1.5 steals during 38.5 minutes of play.  This is Brown's first career weekly accolade.
