After leading Purdue to a couple of conference wins this week, senior Ae’Rianna Harris earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors with a dominating two game stretch.
Harris averaged 23 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2.5 blocks over the last two games while shooting .76% from the field for the Boilermakers.
She also broke Joe Barry Carroll’s record of 349 career blocks to become to all time leading shot blocker in Purdue men and women’s basketball history as she now sits at 352 blocks. This list includes several Purdue legends like JaJuan Johnson, Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton and A.J Hammons, along with Carroll.
This is the first Purdue player to be named Big Ten Player of the Week since Harris herself earned the honor two seasons ago.
Ae’Rianna has undoubtably been Sharon Versyp’s best player this year as she leads the team in points, rebounds and blocks.
Purdue will look to continue the momentum as of late when they travel to East Lansing to take on Michigan State inside Breslin on Thursday at 7:00pm.
