Benedictine junior women's basketball standout Tamika Curtis has been named as the Northern Athletics Conference "Player of the Week" for the period ending January 7. During that time, the Eagles won an overtime game at Judson College and pulled off a last-second victory over Concordia University Chicago (with Curtis playing a vital role in each). In the win over Judson, Curtis hit two free throws with no time remaining to send the game to overtime, adding to her game-high 24 points. Versus Concordia, she nailed the game-winning jumper as time expired to give the Eagles the victory. For the week she averaged 23.5 points, 12.0 rebounds, 4.5 steals, 2.0 assists, and 2.0 blocks per game while shooting 46% (17-of-37) from the field and 94% (13-of-14) from the free throw line.
