William Smith College forward Kristen Kush (G. Ray Bodley/Fulton, N.Y.) collected a second weekly award today. The junior was named the ECAC Women’s Basketball Upstate Player of the Week after earning a spot on the Liberty League Team of the Week yesterday.
On Dec. 30 at No. 20 Medaille, Kush went 10-of-16 from the floor for a team-high 20 points and pulled down five rebounds. It was the second straight game she scored at least 20 points and the fourth time this season. Kush is third in the Liberty League in scoring with a team-high 16.7 ppg. She’s the most accurate shooter on the team, ranking seventh in the conference with a .474 field goal percentage. Kush is second on the team and sixth in the league in rebounding at 7.1 rpg.
The Herons (4-6) are back in action tonight, when they host Potsdam (1-7). Tipoff in Bristol Gym is scheduled for 5 p.m. WHWS-FM (105.7) will broadcast the game.
