University of Scranton junior forward Alexix Roman (Hawley, Pa./Wallenpaupack) has been named the National Jesuit Women's Basketball Player of the Week by Jesuit Basketball Spotlight, the organization announced this afternoon.
This past week, Roman led the Lady Royals in scoring in both games, as Scranton knocked off both Moravian (70-65 in overtime) and Juniata (71-44). Against Moravian, Roman had 24 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the floor in the thrilling win, then added 19 points against Juniata in a win that pushed Scranton's record to 21-0 on the year.
For the season, Roman leads the Lady Royals in the scoring department, averaging 19 points a contest, while also averaging seven rebounds a game. She has scored in double-figures in 21 of the 22 games Scranton has played in for the year, leading the team in scoring in 15 contests.
Nationally, Roman is ranked fifth in all of NCAA Division III in two categories - field goals made (170) and field goal percentage (67.5).
Roman and the rest of the fourth-ranked and unbeaten University of Scranton women's basketball team (22-0 overall and 13-0 in the Landmark Conference) return to action on Saturday, hosting Goucher at home. The Senior Day clash inside the John Long Center gets underway at 2 p.m.
