USBWA Release
Dietrick Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Coming off standout performances versus ACC and SEC opponents last weekend, Princeton basketball junior Blake Dietrick was named the Ann Meyers Drysdale Women's National Player of the Week, it was announced by the USBWA Tuesday.

Dietrick is the first Tiger to ever collect the national accolade and adds her third honor to her budding resume in as many days. The point guard represented Princeton on the Cavalier Classic All-Tournament Team and earned her second Ivy League Player of the Week nod leading up to the national recognition.

As the Ivy League Player of the Week, Dietrick was nominated for the weekly award, which was chosen by a representative of the USBWA board of directors from a list of Division I conference players of the week.

Dietrick has had a seamless transition into Princeton's top point guard this year, putting together impressive performances all seasson. A successful long range shooter throughout her career, Dietrick ranks No. 29 in three-point field goals per game and No. 32 in three-point field goal percentage nationally, holding the No. 2 spot in the Ivy League in both categories.

She is also tabbed in the top-five in the Ivy League in final points (No. 1), assists (No. 2), field goal percentage (No. 2), blocked shots per game (No. 5) and points per game (No. 5).

Dietrick, who is averaging a team-leading 15.2 points per game, and the Tigers (8-5) conclude the preseason with Drexel on Sunday, Jan. 4 at 2 p.m. in Philadelphia.
