Senior forward Brooke Fuller checked off a few boxes this past week for the Waynesburg women’s basketball team, looking to make her senior year as memorable as possible.
Fuller was named Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC) Player of the Week this past Monday for her performances against Grove City and Franciscan, guiding the Yellow Jackets to their first win of the season against the Barons.
“It’s a great feeling to be recognized, especially on the week we won,” Fuller said. “It’s cool to be picked out of everyone else in the conference for the week, but I couldn’t have done it without my team. They set me up for success.”
The Allison Park native averaged 19.5 points, 12.5 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 1.5 steals during the two-game span, including a game-high 21 points and 18 rebounds in 38 minutes at Grove City. She scored 18 points and pulled down seven boards in Waynesburg’s 88-55 impressive showing against Franciscan.
“The most critical part of my success is definitely having a supportive team,” Fuller said. “As a team, we have been very positive and I think having full support from your teammates goes a long way when it comes to having success.”
Fuller sits only 70 points away from the 1,000 point club at Waynesburg University and one of the most noteworthy accomplishments in college basketball.
Fuller is averaging a double-double this season with 16 points and 10.5 rebounds-per-game in eight appearances.
