Maryland senior center Brionna Jones (Aberdeen) was named the National Player of the Week by espnW on Monday after she turned in a career-best performance and helped lead the No. 3 Terps to two Big Ten Conference wins.
Jones averaged 33.5 points and 12 rebounds in victories over Penn State and at Iowa, shooting 72.7 percent from the field and 86.4 percent from the free-throw line.
She tied the program record with a career-high 42 points against the Nittany Lions on Wednesday in an 89-83 win. She missed four of her 19 field-goal attempts and became the fifth player in Terps history to reach 1,000 career rebounds.
Against the Hawkeyes on Sunday, Jones finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, her 12th double double and eighth straight overall. Maryland rallied back following a sloppy second quarter in a 98-82 win.
Jones, who's averaging 19.5 points and 10.4 rebounds per game for the Terps this season, also earned her third career Big Ten Player of the Week honor Monday.
