BAY CITY, MICH. -- Lake Erie College senior center Stephanie Rogers (Mentor, Ohio/Mentor) ws named the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Women's Basketball South Division "Player of the Week" on Monday (Nov. 21) after her performance in a pair of victories last week.
Rogers averaged 19.0 points and 9.0 rebounds in two games last week as Lake Erie opened the season with a 3-0 record for the first time in the program's 32-year history. She led all players with 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three blocks against Salem International, becoming just the sixth women's player in school history to reach the 1,000-point mark for her career.
She followed that performance with her 15th career double-doubles, posting season-highs of 21 points and 10 rebounds in the win over Notre Dame. It was the 11th 20-point game, 16th 10-rebound and 51st double-digit scoring effort of her career.
This is the second time that Rogers has been recognized with the conference's weekly honor. She also took home the award last season on Dec. 6.
Rogers and the Storm (3-0) travel to the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown on Wednesday, Nov. 23, for a nonconference game at 1 p.m.
