Aggies

Perfect night by UCD\’s Heintz is recognized

By December 23, 2010

\n

The UC Davis women\’s basketball team has used an ultra-balanced attack — nine players average

\n

between 13.9 and 26.3 minutes per game — during its outstanding start to the season.

\n

Even within the team concept, senior Heidi Heintz was able to shine recently and earn the Big West Conference\’s Player of the Week on Thursday. It\’s the second such award in her career as she garnered similar honors early last season.

\n

Heintz, a wing from Spokane, Wash., shot a perfect 7-for-7 from the field and 4-for-4 from the free throw line to score a game-high 19 points in Tuesday\’s 102-62 victory over San Jose State. She also supplied four rebounds and two assists in just 23 minutes of court time. Heintz

\n

tallied eight points to spur the Aggies on a 26-2 game-opening run, and had 15 points as UCD finished the first half up 48-19.

\n

The University of San Francisco transfer (before last season) has now scored in double figures in three straight games, totaling 46 points and 14 rebounds in road wins over Wichita State, Sacramento State and the Spartans.

\n

Thursday\’s award marks the second time an Aggie has claimed the weekly nod, with Vicky Deely capturing the first on Nov. 22. UCD holds a 9-2 record and a No. 8 ranking in Tuesday\’s CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25 poll.

\n

The Aggies return to action on Monday in a 7 p.m. home game against Santa Clara.
