Mompremier Named College Sports Madness National Player of the Week
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Beatrice Mompremier of the University of Miami women’s basketball team was selected as the College Sports Madness National Player of the Week, as announced Monday afternoon.
A redshirt junior forward, Mompremier helped lead then-No. 25 Miami (21-5, 9-2 ACC) to victories over then-fourth-ranked Notre Dame and Pittsburgh.
The Hurricanes took down the Fighting Irish, 72-65, Thursday night at the Watsco Center and then notched a 65-51 road victory over the Panthers.
Mompremier posted 18 points and 12 rebounds versus Notre Dame, as the Hurricanes earned their first victory over a defending NCAA champion. She then turned in a 23-point, 13-rebound performance against Pittsburgh.
On the week, the Miami native averaged 20.5 points and 12.5 rebounds, while shooting 60.0 percent (15-of-25) from the floor. Her play, which upped her ACC-leading double-double tally to 19, also earned her ACC Player of the Week distinction for the third time in 2018-19.
Mompremier is the first Hurricane to receive national player of the week recognition since Adrienne Motley garnered the accolade from espnW on Jan. 12, 2015, also following a triumph over a fourth-ranked Notre Dame team.
