Emory University senior Ashley Oldshue (Glenview, IL) has been selected as the University Athletic Association Women's Co-Basketball Player of the Week after helping the Eagles to wins at home over a pair of conference foes. Oldshue shares the honor with Washington University's Rachel Sondag, and represents the second time this season and in her career that she has been a recipient of the league's award.
The 6-foot-2 Oldshue averaged 22.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals in contests against Brandeis and New York University. In addition, she shot 63 percent (17-of-27) from the floor and 84.6 percent (11-of-13) from the free throw line in helping the Eagles raise their overall record to 13-5, 4-3 in the league.
Oldshue dialed up a career-high 30 points, grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds and came up with three steals in a 70-57 decision over Brandeis. She was successful on 11-of-18 field goals and eight-of-nine from the charity stripe in tying the program's ninth-highest individual game point total in school history. Oldshue scored 17 points and totaled 10 rebounds over the final two quarters of play, helping Emory a 42-22 scoring advantage over the Judges that erased a seven-point halftime deficit. She followed that effort by registering a team-high 15 points (13 in the second half) and a game-high 10 boards in a 70-49 outcome over NYU. Oldshue finished six-of-nine from the floor and was successful on three free throws in four tries in notching her 14th straight and 17th double-figure scoring performance of the campaign. In the final stanza, she blocked a pair of NYU shot attempts and in the process became the school's all-time leader in that category with 105 rejections. Her effort vs. NYU represented hre fifth double-double of the year and 16th of her career.
Through 18 games, Ashley leads the team and ranks third among UAA players in scoring average (16.8 ppg) and is second on the league ladder in field goal percentage (.563, 116-of-206) and and fifth in rebounding (8.0 rpg).
