January 23, 2007
BLUFFTON, Ohio - Junior post Lindsay Bush (Howard, Ohio/East Knox) averaged 25 points and 13.5 rebounds per game last week to earn the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference women's basketball Player of the Week award.
The junior center had a phenomenal week on the hardwood, leading the Beavers to a pair of HCAC victories over Mount St. Joseph and two-time defending regular season champion Franklin College. In the process, Bluffton ended a 16-game losing streak to the Grizzlies and won three straight games for the first time since 1999-2000 campaign.
For the week, Bush was red hot from the field, knocking down 20-of-27 shots for a blistering 74 percent. She ripped down 27 rebounds, dished out two assists and picked up three steals. Her consecutive double-doubles propelled the Beavers to their most wins (five) since the 2000-01 season when Bluffton finished with a 12-14 record.
Against the Lions on Wednesday night, Bush ignited the crowd with 25 points on 11-of-14 shooting. She rejected six Mount St. Joseph shots and hauled in 13 rebounds.
Bush followed up her Wednesday night performance with a stellar 9-of-13 shooting afternoon as the Beavers knocked off Franklin College on Saturday, Jan. 20. She ended the contest with her second straight double-double, 25 points and 14 boards, including five offensive caroms.
Bluffton is currently 5-13 overall and 3-6 in Heartland Conference action. The Beavers will return to action against conference-leading Rose-Hulman on Saturday, January 27, 2007, at 1 p.m. in Founders Hall for the first game of the annual Community Day doubleheader.
