SCAC Women's Basketball Podcast - Week 2

On this week's SCAC Women's Basketball Podcast Director of Communications Russell Kramer caught up with Player-of-the-Week Jana Tucker of Trinity.

Tucker sophomore post from Katy, Texas, has been named SCAC Basketball Player-of-the-Week for games played Monday, December 6 through Sunday, December 12.

Tucker led Trinity to a 71-62 win at the University of Dallas on Tuesday, snapping the team’s five-game losing streak.

Tucker scored her first double-double of the season, doing so with 13 points and an impressive 19 rebounds. The 19 boards ties her for 10th in Trinity history for a single game. She hit 4-9 from the field and 4-5 from the foul line, and also swiped three steals in her 33 minutes off the bench.

Even more impressive was Tucker’s second half: She scored all 13 of her points in the final 20 minutes, and grabbed 12 of her 19 rebounds in the second period.

For the season, Tucker is third on the team with 8.6 points/game, but leads the Tigers with 8.0 rebounds/game. She is hitting 31.7% (20-63) from the field this year, and is also tied for third on the team with 13 total steals.
