GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – After a strong showing to open conference action, Mehryn Kraker has been named the Horizon League Player of the Week as announced by the league office on Monday. 

Kraker led the Phoenix in victories over Northern Kentucky and Wright State with huge performance last week. She averaged 22.5 PPG and shot 17-for-24 (70.8%), including a 7-of-10 mark from long range, while averaging 27.5 minutes per game.

Against Wright State, Kraker poured in 17 points in the first quarter of play and shot a perfect 6-6 from the field and 5-5 from three-point range. She would go on to finish with a season-high 28 points in the win.
