INDIANAPOLIS – Ohio Dominican women's basketball guard, Angela Troyer (Sugarcreek, Ohio), has been announced as the Great Midwest Athletic Conference player of the week. The announcement marking the first time the guard has collected the award this season, and the second time she has collected the award in her career.
Troyer enjoyed a dynamic performance during the Panthers 92-90 overtime win against Kentucky Wesleyan on December 17. During ODU's lone contest of the week, she tallied 28 points, eight rebounds, two steals, and seven assists in 45 minutes of action.
The Panther guard also enjoyed a career performance against Cedarville during the opening week of the season. She secured a double-double putting up a career-high 30 points and securing 14 rebounds to give ODU the 95-92 victory over Cedarville on December 3. The victory marking the first Panther win against their G-MAC rivals inside of Alumni Hall in a decade.
These statistics are just a snapshot of a terrific start to the 2020 campaign for the senior. Currently, Troyer sits at the atop the G-MAC in minutes played averaging 41:48 per contest, and is the fourth-best scorer in NCAA Division II averaging 24.3 points-per-game.
She leads the Panthers in point-per-game (24.3), steals (6), and shooting percentage (53.1%).
During Thursday's victory against KWC she became the 25th player in program history to eclipse 1,000 career points in Black and Gold. Troyer joins the company of former teammate Alexa Fisher (2017-20), Madi Rittinger (2013-17), Lauren Bates (2013-17) and Kacee Hockenberry (2011-15) as players that have joined the 1,000-point club in the NCAA Division II era.
The Panther guard spoke with Todd Bell following her milestone moment.
ODU returns to action on January 2 when the Panthers travel to Painesville, Ohio, to take on Lake Erie College.
