Fort Hays State University senior Kate Lehman has been named the MIAA women's basketball Player of the Week.
Lehman averaged a double-double in points (28.0) and rebounds (11.0) for the week in just 41 total minutes of game action (20.5 minutes per game). She scored 30 points in FHSU's 120-39 win over McPherson, a game in which FHSU set a school record for points in a single game. Followed up the performance with her first double-double (and just missing a triple-double) of the season, pulling down 14 rebounds to go with 26 points, in addition to eight blocks. Lehman had at least 20 points in the first half of both games. She shot an impressive 81.5 percent from the field (22-of-27). She is now just four blocks away from overtaking the 6th spot on the NCAA career blocks list with 388 for her career. Climbed to 7th on the FHSU career scoring list (now has 1,451 points for her career). Lehman is now 4th on FHSUs career rebounding list with 812 rebounds. The 6-4 senior center is a native of Newton, where she competed at Newton High School.
