Jolene Anderson earned her fourth career Big Ten Player of the Week honor and second this season with her performance this past week. Anderson, the Big Ten’s leading scorer, averaged 26.5 points and 10 rebounds as Wisconsin played on the road against Indiana and Penn State.
Against the Hoosiers, Anderson netted 23 points on 10-of-19 shooting (.526) and pulled down six rebounds, marking her ninth 20-point game this season. On Sunday against the Lady Lions, the senior poured in 30 points on 13-of-20 shooting (.650) with five assists and tied her career-high with 14 boards. The double-double was the 23rd of Anderson’s career, placing her fifth on the Badgers’ all-time list.
With 53 points over two games last week, the Port Wing, Wis., native moved into ninth on the Big Ten’s all-time scoring list, currently with 2,145 total points. Anderson netted three 3-pointers in each of Wisconsin’s two games and has made at least one shot from beyond the arc in 98 of her 114 career contests.
The senior guard has scored in double figures in 109 of her 114 games played and currently leads the Big Ten with four games of 30-or-more points this season. She has scored 20 or more points in 56 of her 114 game career. Anderson also earned Player of the Week honors Jan. 14 when she became the school's all-time leading scorer with 42 points at Iowa Jan. 13. With 2,145 points, she needs 72 points to tie Alando Tucker (2,217 set in 2007) for Wisconsin's all-time scoring title.
