WAUKESHA, Wis. (WLCSports.com) - Wisconsin Lutheran College's Jen Dowden (Bonduel, Wis.) has been named the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference Women's Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for the events of Nov. 13-19, as selected by the league's sports information directors. This is the fifth career NACC weekly award for the Warriors' junior.

Dowden, who was named to the Paul F. Knueppel Classic All-Tournament Team, averaged 18.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game as the Warriors split a pair of games against top-15 opponents to open their season. The junior forward tied for a game-high with 20 points Friday versus No. 15 DePauw, and added 17 points, including 11 in the second half, in Saturday's 63-50 win over No. 10 Washington-St. Louis. It was WLC's third win over a 10th-ranked team in the last four seasons.

The Warriors (1-1) have a week off before hosting Rockford (0-1) in their NACC opener Saturday, November 25 at 4:15 p.m.
