Bears Quick Notes
• Junior guard D'shara Strange was named both the Big Sky Conference Player of the Week and the College Sports Madness Big Sky Player of the Week after scoring 49 points in the two wins last weekend. It is the fourth-time this year Strange has earned each honor.
• Northern Colorado and Southern Utah are tied 1-1 in the all-time series. The Thunderbirds won the first meeting this season, 73-57.
• Sophomore center Stephanie Lee broke the Northern Colorado Division I single-season record for blocked shots with five against Eastern Washington. Lee now has 36 blocks, bettering the previous record of 32 by Brittany Fernandez (2010-11).
• Both senior forward Lauren Oosdyke and junior guard D'shara Strange moved up on the career scoring charts over the weekend. Oosdyke now ranks fourth with 1,474 points, while Strange is 10th with 1,188 points.
• Northern Colorado's seven wins in February ties for the most-ever in the month, knotting the 1975-76 squad, which went a perfect 7-0.
• A Northern Colorado win in the regular season finale, coupled with a Montana loss at either Northern Arizona or Sacramento State, would give the Bears the right to host the Big Sky Conference Championship. If the Lady Griz win both contests, they will host the tournament in Missoula.
• Northern Colorado swept six series against Big Sky opponents in 2012-13. The Bears won both games against Idaho State, North Dakota, Northern Arizona, Portland State, Sacramento State and Weber State.
