Ohlde named Player of the Week
Last week, Ohlde led No. 12 Kansas State to back-to-back top 25 and Big 12 Conference victories over No. 16 Baylor (85-65) and No. 20 Oklahoma (74-65). She averaged 26.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.5 steals per game against BU and OU combined. Her shooting for the week was even more impressive, going 17-of-27 (.630) from the field and 19-of-24 (.792) from the free throw line.
With 14:18 remaining in the second half vs. OU, Ohlde notched her 18th point of the game to become the first women's basketball player in K-State history and fourth player all-time in Big 12 history to reach 2,000 career points. She ended the night with a game-high 27 points to mark her 41st career 20+ point game. Ohlde also added 10 rebounds vs. the Sooners to give her a school-record leading 39th career double-double performance.
Ohlde has received the weekly award six times in her four-year career at K-State and is only one-of-two Big 12 players (tied with Jamie Carey of Texas) to receive the honor twice this season. She is currently eight rebounds away from becoming the school's all-time leading rebounder with 916 career rebounds to date.
