FORT WAYNE, Ind. – IPFW guard Amanda Hyde was named The Summit League’s Women’s Basketball Player of the Week and the College Sports Madness Summit League Player of the Week for her performances Feb. 24 – March 2.
It is the fifth time in her career that Hyde has earned the honor by College Sports Madness who identifies the players who have made the greatest impact to their team from each conference and on a national basis each Monday.
Hyde earns her seventh career Player of the Week award and fifth this season after guiding IPFW to a pair of league wins, clinching the No. 3 seed in the upcoming league tournament. The five Player of the Week awards this season for Hyde is tied for second most in a single season in Summit League history with Elisha Turek of Oral Roberts (2006-07), just one off the record set by Kevi Luper also of Oral Roberts (2009-10).
The senior tallied 32 points with three assists and two rebounds in a win over Western Illinois on Thursday. She followed that up with 20 points, five rebounds and three assists in the win over Omaha on Saturday. In the regular season finale for the Mastodons, she set a new Summit League single-season record for free throw made and enters tournament play with 199. For the week, Hyde averaged 26 points, 3.5 rebounds, three assists and one steal per game. She committed just one turnover in the two contests for a 6.0 assist-to-turnover ratio. Hyde shot 62 percent (16-of-26) from the field, 95 percent (18-of-19) at the line and was a perfect 2-for-2 behind the arc.
