SEWARD, Neb. – A career performance in the blowout win over Doane led to Concordia University’s Kendal Brigham picking up recognition from the GPAC. On Tuesday (Jan. 16), the conference named Brigham the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Basketball Player of the Week. Brigham has earned the GPAC weekly award for the first time in her career. Teammate Abby Krieser was named GPAC Player of the Week on Nov. 21.

In last week’s only outing, Brigham exploded for a career high 24 points as the 11th-ranked Bulldogs blasted Doane, 101-60. The Wahoo, Neb., native went 5-for-7 from 3-point range as Concordia broke a school record for 3-point field goals in a single game with 20 (on 43 attempts). Brigham also added five assists, three steals and three rebounds to her stat line. The 2022-23 Honorable Mention All-GPAC selection is averaging 10.2 points and 2.7 rebounds on the season. Brigham is shooting 50 percent from the floor, 40.4 percent from beyond the arc and 80 percent from the foul line.

Brigham and the Bulldogs (12-2, 8-2 GPAC) will resume action on Wednesday with a trip to Hastings. Concordia will also host No. 8 Briar Cliff on Saturday.
