Estridge, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior from Eureka, Mo., averaged 23.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 4.0 steals in as the Bulldogs lost twice at the Quincy (Ill.) Holiday Classic last weekend.

In the 73-58 loss to the host Hawks Saturday (Dec. 15), Estridge was 9-of-18 from the field -- including 4-of-5 from the three-point arc -- as he match a career high with 26 points. He added a career-best six steals to go with six boaards and five assists.

The next day against No. 3 South Dakota, Estridge tallied 21 points with six rebounds, five assists and two steals in an 88-55 loss. He was 9-of-13 from the floor against the Coyotes, and set a tournament record with his total of 47 points.

For the week of play ending Dec. 16

Allie Renberg, F
Emporia State University

Renberg, a 6-foot-1 junior from Sleepy Eye, Minn., scored 26 points and hauled in 12 rebounds off the bench for her second double-double in as many games as the No. 14 Lady Hornets defeated Central Methodist (Mo.), 111-51, Friday night (Dec. 14) at White Auditorium.

She had 10 straight points -- including a pair of traditional three-point plays -- in an 18-4 first-half outburst by ESU which gave the Lady Hornets a 22-8 lead.

Renberg scored 16 points with eight rebounds in the second half and finished the game 10-of-19 from the floor and 6-of-6 from the foul line. Emporia State set an MIAA record with a 23-of-23 effort at the charity stripe -- Washburn set the previous mark of 22-for-22 in 1997 vs. Seattle Pacific (Wash.).

Renberg is a graduate of Sleepy Eye High School, and transferred to ESU from Iowa Lakes Community College.
