In a week in which her stat lines in both games were identical, Seward County sophomore center Amanda Pierson has been named the NJCAA National Player of the Week. Pierson led the Lady Saints to their 7th and 8th consecutive wins last week while scoring 14 points, grabbing 7 rebounds, and swatting away 4 shots in each game. The sophomore from Belleville has been the anchor of the Lady Saints inside presence all year leading the team in both rebounding, blocked shots, and shooting percentage and a close second in points per contest with 10.6.
