Junior guard Bridgette Mann (Canadensis, Pa./Wallenpaupack) keeps hauling in the awards for her outstanding play while leading The University of Scranton women's basketball team to three victories last week.

Late Monday night, Mann was named to the D3hoops.com Team of the Week, the website's weekly honor roll that recognizes the top performances of the past week at all five positions.

Mann's scoring streak started with less than two minutes to play and turned a one-point deficit into a road victory. She finished with a team-high 19 points, five assists, three rebounds and a steal.

On Friday, Dec. 15, Mann scored 17 points and had five assists in an 81-48 win over Hartwick in the opening round of the Hilton Scranton Poinsettia Classic. A day later, she earned MVP honors in the tournament by pouring in those 26 points and adding seven rebounds, two assists and a steal in the win over Messiah.
