CORVALLIS – Oregon State guard Aleah Goodman earned national recognition this week, as she was named ESPNW’s National Player of the Week.
Goodman, a sophomore human development and family sciences major, averaged a team-best 18 points over the course of the Beavers’ three wins this week. Goodman started the week off by putting up 22 points on 6-for-13 shooting in a win over No. 2 Oregon. The guard hit all six of her free throws in the game, including several down the stretch to help ice the win.
The sophomore followed that up with a big weekend, scoring 11 points Friday vs. USC and 21 vs. UCLA on Sunday. Her performance against the Bruins included a clutch 3-pointer in the closing minutes to help seal the victory.
Overall, Goodman is averaging 10.8 points for the Beavers this season, and is shooting 43.4 percent from the floor and 43.3 percent from 3-point range. She has scored in double-figures 14 times this season.
