Dana Wieller Earns Freshman of the Week Honors

BLOOMSBURG-Bloomsburg University's women's basketball player Dana Wieller (Bethlehem/Liberty) was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division Freshman of the Week for the period ending November 16.

Wieller, a guard, led the Huskies in scoring with 18 points in a season-opening 67-45 win over Chestnut Hill on Monday night. In her first collegiate game, Wieller shot 50.0 percent from both the floor (7-of-14) and from three-point range (4-for-8) and also had a rebound and an assist in a lineup featuring 12 newcomers, including 11 freshmen, which won its first game of the year.

Wieller and the Huskies will play Dominican on Friday and Nyack College on Saturday in the Nyack Invitational this weekend.
