Hicks Named the CAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week

YORK, PA - For the second time this year, senior forward Brittany Hicks (Dover, Pa./York Catholic) was named the Capital Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the week ending January 5. The Spartan senior led the #19 Spartans to a trio of wins including their second straight in-season tournament title.

Hicks powered the 19th-ranked Spartans to three wins over the last two weeks of action with a pair of double-double performances and averages of 12.3 points, 11.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals per contest. At the Country Inn & Suites Tournament hosted by Oglethorpe, she totaled 14 points and 12 rebounds and delivered the game-winning score in a tournament-opening victory over 22nd-ranked Wisconsin Stevens Point, before notching 13 points and 12 boards against host Oglethorpe on her way to Tournament MVP honors. Hicks then narrowly missed her third straight double-double with 10 points and nine rebounds in a road win at Mary Washington.
