Crandall reaps weekly GLIAC award

Senior guard Dani Crandall of the Grand Valley State University women’s basketball team was named the GLIAC North Division Player of the Week for the second time this season on Monday after notching the team’s best scoring performance in nine years.

Crandall turned in the best statistical output of her career in a 70-67 overtime victory at home against Northwood University on Saturday. She scored a career-high 36 points — the most by a GVSU player since Nikki Reams scored 36 in February 2005 — and collected 10 rebounds for her third double-double of the season.

She also recorded 18 points, five points and three assists in a 72-63 win at Lake Superior State on Thursday.

Her final game at the Fieldhouse Arena will be played against Saginaw Valley State University on Thursday at 6 p.m.
