Baker basketball player conference player of the week
Baker University’s senior forward Rece Huddlin was selected the first Heart of America Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week winner for the 2012-13 campaign on Monday afternoon.
Baker won both of its contests last week to get off to a 2-0 start in conference play with Huddlin recording a pair of double-doubles along the way.
A native of Hartford, Conn., she averaged 16 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists and 2.5 steals per game, while hitting 57.9 percent (11-19) from the field and 8-11 (.727) from the free throw line.
Her first-ever HAAC game came against local rival Avila on Thursday and she made quite a splash on the conference scene with 15 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals against the Eagles.
She followed that up at home on Saturday against Missouri Valley with 17 points and 20 rebounds to help the Wildcats improve to 8-3 on the season.
Baker will next take on William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo., on Friday, Dec. 14 at 5:30 p.m.
