Anteaters' junior forward's two double-doubles help her earn Big West Player of Week recognition.
UC Irvine junior Mikah Maly-Karros was named Big West Conference Player of the Week in women's basketball Monday.
Maly-Karros recorded a pair of double-doubles to lead the Anteaters (11-4, 3-0 in conference) to victories over Cal State Fullerton (Wednesday) and Long Beach State (Saturday).
The 6-foot-1 forward had a season-high 26 points and added 10 rebounds in the 70-65 win over the host Titans. She had 14 points in 17 first-half minutes against the Titans to lift the Anteaters to a 35-31 lead at intermission.
She followed that up with her third consecutive double-double, registering 25 points and 11 boards in the 77-59 home win over Long Beach State.
Maly-Karros was 10 for 13 from the field against the 49ers (76.9%), and made all four of her free-throw attempts. She also blocked two shots 32 minutes.
