Conahan picks up GPAC award

Concordia’s Kristen Conahan is this week’s GPAC Player-of-the-Week.  The sophomore guard led the way, as Concordia picked up wins over then 14th-ranked Hastings and then 5th-ranked Morningside last week. 

Conahan (Omaha, Neb.) scored 19 points in Concordia’s 59-47 road win over Hastings College last Wednesday.  She followed with a career-high 25 points in CU’s 74-65 win at Morningside on Saturday.  She was 9-of-12 from the field and connected on four 3-pointers in the win over the Mustangs. 

For the year, Conahan leads Concordia with 15.7 points per game.  Her scoring average ranks fifth in the GPAC.  She also leads Concordia in minutes per game (28.5) and 3-pointers made (53) while ranking second on the team in steals (45) and third in assists (39). 

The Bulldogs host Midland University and Dakota Wesleyan University this week at the Walz Human Performance Complex.
