CHICAGO ---Two all around perfomance from junior guard Miranda Geever's (Moline, Ill.) for the No. 13 Olivet Nazaerne Univeristy women's basketball team has earned her the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week honors. Geever helped the Tigers open the season with a 2-0 record, including the upset of No. 6 Saint Xavier Univeristy (Ill.).
Geever totaled 21 points, six steals and four rebounds and four assists as the Tigers outlasted Trinity International University, 111-106, on Wednesday, Nov. 7. Three days later, Geever scored a team-high 20 points and just missed a double-double with her nine rebounds in the win over Saint Xavier. That same day, she also contributed three steals and three assists.
For the week, Geever averaged 20.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 steals and 3.5 assists per game, while shooting .560 from the field (14-of-25). She was more deadly from three-point range, where she nailed five of eight shots (.625). She also converted on eight of 12 free throws.
Geever and the Tigers return to the court at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 14 to host Holy Cross College (Ind.).
