The Rahway, NJ, native also led the team in steals (42), and made nearly 75 percent of her free throw attempts (137-184). She reached double-figure scoring in 24 out of 31 games and combined for 15 doubles-doubles while scoring a career-high 36 points against Texas-Pan American (February 2), one shy of the program Division I record.
