Karynda DuPree - Women's Basketball
Senior Karynda DuPree was the unsung hero for the Maroon & Gold over the past week, twice tying her career-high in rebounds in two road wins for the Iona College women's basketball team.
On Thursday, Feb. 2, the Gaels took down the Niagara Purple Eagles for their fifth straight win, 65-55. DuPree pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds, seven of which were offensive, and poured in nine points. She also dished out a team-best four assists and blocked two shots.
Capping off the Western New York trip, the Maroon & Gold battled for a come-from-behind 58-45 win over the Canisius Golden Griffins. DuPree was dominant for Iona, scoring a career-high 17 points and once again tying her career-high with 12 rebounds. She shot 6-for-12 from the floor, and 5-of-8 from the free throw line.
Iona returns to action on Friday night when they it hosts Rider University at the Hynes Center; tip-off set for 7 PM.
