More honors for Norlin
To say Hannah Norlin of the University of Wisconsin-Superior has had a good start to the 2018-19 season would be a serious understatement.
The senior forward started off the week earning her third-consecutive Upper Midwest Athletic Conference Player of the Week award Monday before following that up with two national honors announced Tuesday.
Norlin was selected to the D3Hoops.com Team of the Week and was also selected as the Division III Women's Basketball National Player of the Week by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association after leading the Yellowjackets to three wins last week.
Over a three-game span last week, Norlin averaged 20.7 points and eight rebounds per game. She also tallied 3.3 blocks and two steals per game and shot 65.9 percent from the floor.
She started her week with 21 points, five rebounds and five blocks in leading the Yellowjackets to a 58-50 win over Division II Bemidji State.
In the team's next win over St. Benedict, Norlin recorded her second double-double of the season with 19 points and 13 rebounds and also scored her 1,000th career point in the process.
Norlin ended her week with 22 points, eight rebounds, four blocks and three assists in a 75-64 win over UW-Eau Claire.
So far this season, Norlin is averaging 19 ppg and leads the UMAC with 9.5 rpg. Her 64.6 percent shooting also leads the UMAC and her 2.7 blocks per game ranks second.
Norlin and the Yellowjackets (5-1) will take a three-game winning streak into conference play against St. Scholastica at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in Duluth.
