Player of the week
Nakiyah Hurst, Milwaukee Academy of Science: The senior wing has played big for the Novas all season, but that was especially the case Tuesday against Beaver Dam. Against the fifth-ranked team in the wissport.net Division 2 state poll, the North Dakota recruit hit 10 of 18 shots for 27 points and grabbed 17 rebounds. She also came through in the clutch, hitting a 25 foot three-pointer at the buzzer to lift her team to an 85-82 win. The bucket and the game has been the highlight of a big season for the 6-foot forward, who is averaging 19.2 points, 13 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.
