Liza Karlen named Big East Player of the Week


Here's what the league office said:

Karlen helped lead Marquette to a 2-0 start to the season, which included a win over No. 23 Illinois on Saturday. Against the Fighting Illini, Karlen scored a game-high 22 points off 11-of-16 shooting, while grabbing four boards and registering an assist and a steal. Eight of her 22 points came in the fourth quarter as MU held off the Illinois charge. Karlen opened the season with a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double in Monday’s win over UT Martin. She shot over 65 percent from the field on the week.
