|Monmouth College's Boone Recognized by Midwest Conference
|POSTED 9:22 a-m 2/4/10 Monmouth College's Justine Boone helped the Fighting Scots to a pair of wins last week and was named the Midwest Conference Performer of the Week in women's basketball.
A junior guard from Geneseo, Boone helped Monmouth maintain a tie in the MWC for the fourth and final conference playoff berth. In a 75-60 win over Grinnell last Wednesday, the business major recorded a double-double and just missed by two rebounds in her bid to become the first Monmouth woman to record a triple-double. She poured in 13 points, dished out 11 assists, pulled down eight rebounds and recorded four steals while playing all but four minutes. Her 11 assists and four field goals accounted for half of the Scots' 30 baskets.
Boone followed Wednesday's performance with another stellar effort in a 61-45 win over Knox. She scored another 13 points, recorded five assists and made six steals as the Scots held Knox scoreless over the final 7:45 of the game. For the week, Boone averaged 13 points, 4.5 rebounds, 8.5 assists and five steals per game.
