SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – In a week which saw 13 nominations submitted to the conference office, four student-athletes rose above the rest to claim Feb. 18’s OCCAC Basketball Player of the Week awards. Amanda Schroeder (Sinclair) and Taylor Works (Owens) are the women’s recipients while Lacey Watson (Edison State) and Azende Johnson (Hocking College) brought home the men’s accolades.

Amanda Schroeder (6-00/SO – Carroll H.S.) lifted the 20th-ranked Tartan Pride to a pair of conference wins by dominating with 39.0 points and 14.5 rebounds per game. She added 4.0 assists, 3.5 blocks and 1.5 steals/game to her sensational weekly stat line in the lopsided victories. Schroeder shot 63% (29-46) from the floor and 60% in knocking down a dozen 3-pointers (12-20).

Schroeder now owns three OCCAC weekly honors this season and eight in her 1,429 career points, Sinclair record for career points.
