RICHMOND, Ind. – Earlham College women's basketball player Zoe Curtis was named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week on Monday, for her efforts that led to a pair of Quaker conference victories last week.
Curtis, a sophomore from New Castle, Ind., charted 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting from the field in Earlham's 71-55 win over Defiance College last Wednesday. She also grabbed four rebounds and snagged three steals for the Quaker win.
Curtis came back with a game-high 19 points in the Quakers' 73-47 triumph over Manchester on Saturday at the Druley Performance Court. She shot 9-of-13 from the floor and hauled down six boards, while also recording an assist and a steal.
For the week, Curtis averaged 16.5 points and 5.0 rebounds while shooting .600 from the field.
Curtis is the first Earlham women's basketball player to earn HCAC weekly honors since Kasin Spay did so on January 19, 2016. The two Quaker victories marked the first back-to-back wins by Earlham women's basketball since mid-January during the 2015-16 campaign, when the Quakers knocked off Defiance and Mount St. Joseph in consecutive contests.
The Maroon and White return to action on Wednesday, Jan. 24, when the Quakers travel to Bluffton, Ohio, to face Bluffton University in an HCAC matchup. Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
