MILWAUKEE, Wis. (naccsports.org) --- Benedictine University sophomore forward Alex Fanning (Elmwood Park, Ill.) has been named Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Women's Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Feb. 3-9, 2020, as selected by the league's sports information directors.

Fanning scored 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting and grabbed a career-high 20 rebounds while blocking five shots in 59-56 win over Wisconsin Lutheran on Feb. 5. She hit the game-tying three-pointer in the closing seconds of regulation to force overtime as the Eagles eventually won after rallying from down nine in the fourth quarter. The victory gave Benedictine a regular-season sweep of WLC for the first time in program history. Fanning added seven points, six rebounds and two assists in just 13 minutes as Benedictine cruised to an 82-53 win at Rockford Feb. 8 as the Eagles remained unbeaten in league play and extended their winning streak to 12 games.

This is Fanning's fourth NACC Student-Athlete of the Week honor this season.
