BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - WKU women’s basketball freshman forward Caitlin Staley has been named Conference USA Freshman of the Week, the league announced on Monday afternoon.
Staley has made an immediate impact with the Lady Toppers, starting in all five games so far this season. Last week, Staley averaged 3.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game. She put up eight points along with two rebounds and two blocks at Vanderbilt. She pulled down four boards at Miami (Ohio), tying her season high.
The Augusta, Georgia native has 12 total blocks this season, which is the second most in CUSA and the 12th most nationally.
