No. 13 Maryland women’s basketball’s forward/guard Angel Reese had another solid week and was named to the Big Ten Player of the Week Honor Roll, the program announced on Monday afternoon.

This is the sixth time that the sophomore has been placed on the Big Ten Player of the Week Honor Roll this season.

Reese spearheaded the Terps in their three games this week, collecting an average of 17.3 points and 11 rebounds per game. Maryland claimed two victories over top-25 opponents this past week as it took down then-No. 22 Iowa and then-No. 18 Ohio State, on the road and in the Xfinity Center, respectively. The only loss this week for Maryland came against No. 6 Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the form of a 12-point defeat.

In the wins over the Hawkeyes and the Buckeyes, Reese was nothing short of phenomenal. She added 25 points in the Iowa matchup and followed that up with 21 against Ohio State, combining for 16-made free throws on 21 attempts in those two matchups combined. Reese has five blocks and three steals over the last three games.

Maryland will have its final matchup of the regular season on Friday night, when No. 5 Indiana visits College Park. The Big Ten tournament is set to begin on March 2.
