Amie Bibby, a member of the Mount Vernon Nazarene College women's basketball team, has been selected as the National Christian College Athletic Association National Player of the Week for her efforts during the week of November 1-7.
Bibby, a 5-foot-10 senior forward from Mount Vernon, Ohio, led MVNC to the 1999 Lady Cougar Tip-off Tournament title with two victories as the team began the year with a 2-0 start.
In the first round of the tournament, the former standout at Danville High School led MVNC to a 78-53 victory over Ohio State University-Newark with a team-high 18 points, 10 rebounds, and five steals in 22 minutes of action off the bench. Bibby connected on 7-of-10 field goal attempts against the Lady Titans, including a 4-for-5 performance from behind the three-point arc.
In the championship game, Bibby tossed in 11 points and grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds in 24 minutes of action off the bench as the Lady Cougars downed Bethel (IN) College 93-75 to win the tournament. She also had four steals and was 5-for-6 at the charity stripe. In addition, she was 2-for-4 from the three-point line as MVNC set a new school record with 18 treys in the contest.
For the week, Bibby averaged 14.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game while shooting 56.3 percent from the field (9-of-16), 66.7 percent from the three-point line (6-of-9), and 83.3 percent from the free throw line (5-of-6). She also recorded nine steals, one assist, and one blocked shot.
The Lady Cougars will return to action on Tuesday when the team will travel to Kentucky Christian College for a non-conference contest against the Lady Knights (3-0) at 5:30 p.m.
