Hilton, NY–Sage's women's basketball performer, graduate player Kaitlyn Bowman (Chateaugay, NY/Saranac) was named the Empire 8 Women's Basketball Player of the Week for her efforts last week. Bowman is coming off an impressive performance that capped her three games last week with a personal-best 33 points against Suffolk University.
Bowman, a starter in three games last week for the Gators, added 58 points with 29 rebounds, 13 assists and three steals, while shooting 57.0% from the floor and 78.0% from the line. Against Suffolk, Bowman was 5-6 from the floor and 4-4 from the line in the first half. In the second half, Bowman was 4-5 from the floor, while making 15 trips to the free throw line and making 11 of them with 19 second half points for the Gators. The 33 points scored by Bowman in the Suffolk game is the most this season for an Empire 8 player on the 2019-2020 season and marks the fourth time in Sage women's basketball history a player has scored 33 or more points. On the week, she averaged 19.3 ppg and 9.67 rpg.
Sage's Bowman surpassed the 800 career point plateau on Saturday as she checks in with 820 points and is 12th all-time in scoring at Sage. Her 657 rebounds puts her fourth on the career list.
Bowman has also now played in 93 career games at Sage after taking last season off to focus on academics. A graduate student at Sage, she is now tied for 10th in career appearances, while adding 10 career double-doubles to her list of accomplishments.
