Sauter named player of the week for second time
Jennine Sauter was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference West Division Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.
Sauter became the first UCCS womenâ€TMs basketball player to receive the award twice in the same season since Stephanie Frisch did it in the 1998-99 season. It was also the first time that UCCS had received three player of the week awards in the same season since Julie Richards was also so honored for the period from Dec. 18-31.
Sauter became the West Division Player of the Week after helping her team put three in the win column this week. Between the three games, Sauter went 27-45 (.600) from the floor and 8-17 (.471) from the 3-point line. She also had 20 rebounds and six steals.
Sauter currently sits second in the conference for overall scoring (20.9 pts./game) as well as rebounding (8.2/ game). With her performances this past week, she has also moved into fourth place on both the UCCS all-time scoring and rebounding lists.
Sauter's knack for the basket aided the team's shooting performances of 51.7 percent against Colorado College and 51.9 percent against Mesa State, the best since Dec. 16, 2001.
Sauter was also named RMAC/Baden West Division Player of the Week on January 10.
