BIG TEN WOMEN’S BASKETBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Stephany Skrba, Michigan
Sr., F, 6-2, Toronto, Ontario/Langstaff Secondary
Skrba earns her second career weekly honor after leading Michigan to an overtime win against No. 8 Notre Dame on Wednesday. The senior forward recorded her second 20-point game of the season, shooting at a blistering .909 clip (10-11) from the floor. The Toronto native also added three rebounds, an assist, two blocks and three steals as the Wolverines defeated their highest-ranked opponent since the 2000-01 campaign. Skrba tallied 12 points in the first half and netted Michigan’s only two overtime field goals as the Wolverines went on to stun the Fighting Irish, 63-59. Ten field goals on 11 attempts both marked career highs for the senior who takes home Michigan’s first weekly accolade since 2005.
