The Mavericks were great on the court over the weekend with two home wins, and now they are getting some recognition off the court.

Senior guard Paige Frauendorfer was named Summit League Player of the Week for the 2nd time this season.  Paige had an amazing all-around performance on Thursday night scoring 16 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, dishing four assists and taking away four steals.  She followed that up on Saturday with a 23 point scoring performance and ten rebounds. Paige also had the crucial baskets down the stretch that gave Omaha a six point lead and gave some breathing room.

Paige’s back-to-back double-doubles earned her the player of the week honors for the 2nd time, her first being the 2nd week of the season.

You can read more about it on your various sites… The Summit League site, Omavs, or the Omaha World-Herald though they are all basically the same press release….

In other exciting honors… the team was named the women’s basketball “Team of the Weekend” by writer Graham Hays of espn.com and espnW. Hays writes in part, “A team for which the schedule a season ago included York, Briar Cliff, Northwest Missouri State, Missouri Western and Dallas Christian (and which went a modest 15-12 against that schedule) is 11-3 this season, and 9-3 against Division I opponents, after improving to 3-1 in the Summit League with wins last week against Oakland and IPFW.”

He also gives shout outs to Jamie Nash, Paige Frauendorfer, and Carolyn-Blair Mobley. Quite the honor in the women’s college basketball world where many many teams and players will go their whole careers without any national attention whatsoever. It shows what a great season Omaha has had that they’ve received this kind of recognition.

Way to go Mavericks!
