CHICAGO – After a strong opening week, University of Chicago women's basketball player Taylor Lake was named as an Athlete of the Week by the University Athletic Association (UAA) on Monday.
The No. 8-ranked Maroons went 2-0 to start the season with a 22-point win at Lake Forest College and a 77-76 victory at No. 10-ranked Illinois Wesleyan University. Lake was a catalyst on both ends of the floor – she shot 52 percent from the field while averaging 16.0 points per game while also contributing 9.0 rebounds and 3.5 steals per game. The junior forward started all 27 games last year en route to earning Second Team All-UAA status.
