Good for Taiye. She has quietly developed into one of the best inside players in the conference. Gophers would not have won either of the past two games without her efforts.

Awesome! Nice job, Pitts! And they didn’t even mention the double-double that she apparently got gypped out of (per EaganGopher22) by the scorers table.

(Those were our scorers. Can’t we tell the Athletics Office to fix that in the stats they submitted to the NCAA?)

That is awesome. Was the last Rachel Banham or Zauie B?
Pitts is the second Gopher in history to be named the National Player of the Week since the USBWA started handing out the honor during the 2011-12 season. The other to do it was Rachel Banham on Feb. 9, 2016.

Tuesday's announcement, however, is not the first time Pitts has been recognized by the USBWA as she was named the National Freshman of the Week on Feb. 13, 2018.

Looks like second time for Scalia. Would have been shocked if she didn't get recognized this week.

Love Scalia's game. She's improved substantially since high school and there might be more improvement yet to be had. I'm thinking so.

Might get recognized a lot going forward if she’s the main one filling the scoring void for Pitts.

Let's hope we see more of what Hubbard is talking about (StarTrib article by Sam King):

Scalia was one of five Gophers players to score in double figures. Hubbard scored 17 points, Jasmine Brunson added 13 and Jasmine Powell and Taiye Bello had 10 apiece.

“Everybody has to contribute, whether it is scoring or defense,” Hubbard said. “It does help when everybody is pitching in and getting their shots going.”

I don’t get the point of putting the freshman of the week on the honor roll.
