CINCINNATI – University of Cincinnati women’s basketball senior forward Jeanise Randolph (Chicago, Ill./Thornton Fractional North) has earned a third award this week, being named U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Ann Meyers Drysdale National Player of the Week.
Randolph previously earned American Athletic Conference Player of the Week and College Sports Madness American Player of the Week honors, announced Monday, December 16.
The senior forward collected all three honors following her performance during a 64-49 win over Ohio State Sunday afternoon. Randolph recorded her third double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Six of her rebounds came off the offensive glass and led to five points for UC. Overall Randolph was 5-of-11 from the floor, 5-of-6 from the free throw line and dished out one assist.
Randolph is second this season in scoring at 12.2 points per game, a pace the more than doubles any season scoring average during her previous three campaigns. The senior leads the squad this season in both rebounding (7.2) and field-goal percentage (57.5), connecting on 46-of-80 shots.
