IVCC's Thomas earns NJCAA honor

Sports Staff

Illinois Valley Community College women’s basketball standout Arnisha Thomas has been named National Junior College Athletic Association Player of the Week after helping lead the Eagles to a pair of wins last week. It is believed to be the first time an IVCC athlete has received the NJCAA Player of the Week award.

“This is a huge honor for Arnisha and for our program,” said IVCC women’s coach Pat Cinotte.

Thomas, a sophomore guard from Milwaukee, averaged 31.5 points and 16.5 rebounds in Arrowhead Conference victories over Highland, where she tallied 28 points and 17 rebounds, and Sauk Valley, as she scorched the Skyhawks with  35 points and 16 rebounds.

The Eagle women, 15-4 and ranked 17th in the nation in NJCAA DII women’s hoops, play at Carl Sandburg Thursday on the road in Galesburg before playing host to Illinois Central of East Peoria at 1 p.m. Saturday in Oglesby.
