Howard junior forward Saadia Doyle was named Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Player of the Week after a standout performance against Wake Forest that resulted in a 63-59 victory on Dec. 18.
The Atlanta, Ga. native scored 28 points along down seven rebounds, one block and one steal in the win over Wake Forest at Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston Salem, N.C. Doyle shot 53-percent from the field, making 10-of-19 shots, while also converting 89-percent of her free-throws (8-of-9) while playing all 43 minutes of the game.
In that same game, junior guard Tamoria Holmes also played well, adding 14 points while fellow junior guard Cheyenne Curley-Payne also scored double digits with 10 points.
The non-conference win helped Howard extend its current winning streak to five games as the team now carries a 5-5 overall record. The Lady Bison will see more nonconference road action on Dec. 28 with a contest against Seton Hall in Orange, N.J.
