Marina Lizarazu - Women's Basketball

With a stellar performance at Penn State last week, Iona College women's basketball senior Marina Lizarazu has been named this week's MAAC Player of the Weekand Iona College's Female Student-Athlete of the Week.

Lizarazu put together a terrific performance Tuesday afternoon at Penn State, scoring a season-high 23 points on 8-for-18 shooting. She went 2-of-3 from beyond the arc, and 5-for-7 from the free throw line. Lizarazu scored 11 of her 23 points in the fourth quarter in an effort to carry the Gaels to a momentous comeback.

Defensively, Lizarazu was matched up against Lady Lion sophomore Teniya Page, who entered the game ranked top 25 in the nation averaging over 20 points per game; against Lizarazu, she held the potent threat to 11 points in 28 minutes.  The Madrid, Spain native recorded a season-best seven steals and drew two charges.

The Gaels return home this Friday after the extended break, hosting Canisius for a 1:00 pm contest inside the Hynes Center.
