IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa senior guard Jaime Printy has been named Big Ten Player of Week for her efforts in Iowa’s wins against Wisconsin and at No. 23 Michigan last week. The announcement was made Tuesday by the conference office.
Printy averaged 21.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, shot 54.5 percent from the field, 41.7 percent from 3-point range and was 14-of-15 from the free throw line in Iowa’s two wins.
Printy netted 29 points against Wisconsin, missing only two shots in 10 attempts, while going 3-of-3 from 3-point distance and 10-of-11 from the charity stripe. She also added eight rebounds and four assists, with just one turnover, in 35 minutes.
Printy took over in the final minutes against the Badgers, scoring 14-straight points to give Iowa the win. The Hawkeyes trailed 52-51 with 5:25 left before Printy Iowa’s next 14 points, including her own personal 12-0 run, from the 4:11-1:53 mark, giving Iowa a 10-point advantage.
The Marion, Iowa, native finished the week with 14 points and five rebounds at No. 23 Michigan. She was a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line and became the sixth player in Iowa history to score 1,700 career points.
This marks the second time in Printy’s career she has been named Big Ten Player of the Week and her sixth Big Ten honor (four-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week in 2009-10).
Morgan Johnson was named Big Ten Player of the Week earlier this year for her efforts in the Preseason WNIT semifinals and finals.
