For the week of action ending Nov. 25
Michelle Stueve, F
Emporia State University
Stueve (pronounced STEE-vee), a 6-foot-2 senior from Olpe, Kan., averaged 25.6 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals and made 66.7 percent of her three-point attempts as the No. 3 Lady Hornets split a pair of games at the Cameron (Okla.) Powerade Thanksgiving Classic last weekend.
She scored 20 of her 27 points against the host Lady Aggies in the second half, as ESU defeated Cameron, 80-60, Friday night (Nov. 23). Stueve was 5-of-9 from three-point range, 8-of-14 from the field overall against CU, with six boards, two assists and two steals.
In a 71-66 loss to Central Oklahoma the next day, she had a game-high 24 points and hauled in 16 rebounds before fouling out for the first time since Jan. 11, 2006.
Stueve was 7-of-9 from three-point range against the Lady Bronchos, and became the first ESU women's player to score at least 20 points in each of the team's first four games since U.S. Olympian Patricia Roberts did it in 1975-76.
Stueve, a 2006-07 Kodak/WBCA Division II All-America selection, is a graduate of Olpe High School.
