Holly Forbes of Mineral Area College earned Region 16 DI Women’s Basketball Player of the Week for the third time this season.
The Lady Cardinals beat Jefferson College in their only game last week, 65-44, in Hillsboro. Holly was key in the victory. The Cardinals lead was 7 at the end of 3 periods, that’s when MAC, lead by Forbes, put the game out of reach by out scoring their host 28-14 in the final ten minutes. The North County grad recorded a double-double in the process, scoring 17 points and gathering 11 missed shots, 10 of those from Lady Viking misses. The double-double was Holly’s 6th of the season. She continues to lead the team in scoring (14.5 ppg), FG% (60.3), rebounds (8.1 per game), steals (1.7 per game), and tied in blocked shots (.6 per game), and her FG% ranks 12th nationally.
