Jan. 28, 2013
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. -- Navy's Jade Geif (Jr., Lakeville, Minn.) was named Monday as this week's Anaconda Patriot League Women's Basketball Player of the Week. She earned her second such award of the season for her efforts in Navy's wins over American and Colgate.
Geif led Navy in points (33), field goal percentage (73.7%), field goals made (14), rebounds (19) and assists (9) on the week. She initially connected on 7 of 10 attempts from the field in scoring 16 points and grabbing 10 rebounds (seventh double-double of the season) against American. She followed up that performance by sinking 7 of 9 shots from the floor in scoring 17 points while adding nine rebounds, a career-high tying six assists, two steals and one blocked shot against the Raiders.
Geif has now scored 10 or more points in 50 of her 84 career games, including 14 of 20 games this season, and has surpassed the 900-point plateau for her career (911).
Navy, 4-1, will close out the first half of the Patriot League season with games Wednesday at Lehigh and Saturday at home against Bucknell.
