Kat Suderman Named Golden1 Athlete of the Week

Feb. 11, 2008

Kat Suderman averaged 18.5 points and six rebounds to lead UCSB to Big West Conference victories over Cal State Fullerton and UC Irvine last week.

In Thursday's 72-63 win over the Titans, Suderman recorded her first double-double of 2007-08 and third of her career with 15 points and 11 rebounds in just 23 minutes of action. The junior forward was 5-of-9 from the field and a flawless 5-for-5 at the free throw line on the way to her 12th double digit scoring effort in the last 14 games. Her 11 boards was a game-high and stands as her high mark this season.

Suderman continued her dominance two days later, scoring a career-high 22 points on 11-for-14 shooting in the 77-69 victory over the Anteaters. Playing a total of just 22 minutes, the San Luis Obispo, Calif. native also established a new career mark for field goals made while leading the Gauchos to their 11th consecutive win.

For the week, Suderman shot 69.6% from the field as Santa Barbara improved to 10-0 in the Big West.
