Rice guard Nicole Iademarco has been named College Sports Madness Conference USA Women's Basketball Player of the Week for Feb. 13-19, the organization announced on Monday (Feb. 20).
Iademarco helped guide the Owls to a second straight 2-0 weekend, and four consecutive wins overall, by averaging a team-best 19.5 ppg, making 9-of-21 three-point attempts. In Rice's 66-61 win at UTSA on Feb. 16 (Thurs.), the redshirt sophomore from The Woodlands, Texas, helped spark a 14-point comeback by scoring all 16 of her points in the second half while grabbing six rebounds and recording three steals. Then on Saturday (Feb. 18) she played 39 minutes, scoring a career-high 23 points on 7-of-17 shooting.
On Monday the C-USA office also announced Iademarco was named to the league's Women's Basketball Weekly Honor roll. The Owls (16-9 overall and 7-7 in conference action) return to the court on Thursday (Feb. 23) for a C-USA road game at Southern Miss.
