FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Indiana Purdue-Fort Wayne guard Amanda Hyde has been named the Summit League’s Co-Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for her performance last week.
Hyde shared The Summit League award with Ashley Luke from Western Illinois.
Hyde earned her sixth career Summit League Player of the Week award and fourth this season, becoming just the 10th player in league history to amass at least four Player of the Week awards in a single season, after scoring 36 points in a win over IUPU-Indianapolis Saturday.
The senior guard from Liberty-Benton was 9 of 14 (64 percent) from the field and 18 of 20 (90 percent) at the foul line. Her 18 free throws tied her career-high and her own Summit League record. She also grabbed three rebounds, dished out three assists with two steals and one blocked shot.
Hyde’s 36 points were the most scored on IUPUI by a player this season while Fort Wayne’s 78 points were also the most allowed by the Jaguars.
