PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Allyssa DeHaan, MSU
So., C, 6-9, Grandville, Mich./Grandville
DeHaan earns the fifth weekly honor of her career and her third this season after leading Michigan State to three wins last week. The sophomore averaged 15.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.3 blocks and 2.0 assists as the Spartans climbed from eighth to sixth in the Big Ten standings. DeHaan opened the week with 15 points and six blocks against Purdue, making her the first player in Big Ten history to record 100 blocks in two different seasons. On the road against Indiana on Thursday, the center recorded a season-high 15 rebounds and a game-high 16 points, converting on her last four field-goal attempts to give MSU key leads late in the game. The double-double was her sixth of the season. On Sunday, DeHaan helped the Spartans to their first-ever win at Penn State, netting 16 points on .500 shooting and a 6-of-6 performance from the free-throw line. DeHaan finished the week 13-of-14 from the charity stripe.
