Athletes Of The Week

Daisy Alaeze, Roland Park, basketball

The sophomore small forward averaged 19.7 points and 6.7 rebounds to lead the Reds to three wins last week, as they improved to 7-0 this season. Alaeze, who averaged a team-high 17 points as a freshman, scored 17 points and added five rebounds and two blocks in the first half of the Reds' 55-21 win over the Institute of Notre Dame on Wednesday. She then scored 22 points - more than half of her team's output - in Friday's 42-40 upset of No. 5 St. Frances, also contributing seven rebounds and four blocks in playing all 32 minutes. She closed out the week Saturday with a 20-point, eight-rebound effort in a 42-28 win over Bryn Mawr. The three wins propelled the Reds from No. 14 to No. 2 in The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 girls basketball poll this week.
