Lisch Named A-10 Player of Week

The Atlantic 10 Conference named Saint Louis junior guard Theresa Lisch (Belleville, Ill./Althoff) its women's basketball Player of the Week for the period of Jan. 5-11. The A-10 honor is the third of Lisch's career and her second this season.

Lisch averaged 22.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 4.5 assists in the Billikens' two games last week. She shot 56 percent (14-of-25) from the field, 57 percent (4-of-7) from 3-point range and 87 percent (13-of-15) from the free-throw line.

Lisch scored a game-high 24 points, including a 10-of-11 performance from the charity stripe, and added five rebounds and two assists in a 65-52 victory at Hampton Jan. 6.

She tallied her fifth career double-double and second of the season in a 73-68 loss to Dayton Jan. 10, producing a game-high 21 points and tying her season best with a team-high 11 rebounds. She also distributed a game-high seven assists and made a steal.

Lisch leads the A-10 in scoring with 19.6 points per game, 3.4 ppg ahead of the league's No. 2 scorer. She ranks second in the league in free-throw percentage with 87.4 percent, and her 97 free throws made and 111 attempts lead the conference by a wide margin.

Lisch has moved into 12th on SLU's all-time scoring list with 1,102 points, and she has 334 free throws made, needing just 17 more to surpass the Bills' career record of 350. She also ranks sixth at SLU with 108 career 3-point field goals.
