ANNVILLE, Pa. – Behind matching a single-game program record, sophomore Albright women’s basketball player Dejah Terrell was named MAC Commonwealth Women’s Basketball Offensive Player of the Week, announced by the conference on December 16.
Terrell set a new career-high with 27 points and matched an Albright single-game program record with 26 rebounds in the Lions 81-50 win over Hood last Saturday. The 26 rebounds were the most in a game by any Lions player since Lauren Keffer set the record back in 1978 against Juniata. Her performance helped Albright outscore the Blazers 51-29 in the second half after they trailed by one point at halftime.
Terrell currently leads the conference in scoring at 19.1 points per game, and now ranks third in the conference at 10.8 rebounds per game. She ranks sixth in the conference with a 50.6 field goal percentage, and on defense she ranks second with 3.0 blocks per game.
It is her second-straight week of earning a player of the week award from the conference, and third overall on the season.
