Senior Becca Tilleman garnered Muskie of the Week honors this week for her performance in the Muskies' 70-53 win over Alverno College on Nov.26.
The 5-foot-4 guard was a big reason for the Muskies victory. Tilleman scored nine points on 3-for-4 shooting behind the 3-point line while also grabbing eight rebounds. She added five steals and four assists in 38 minutes of play. "She hit some big shots," said Lakeland College head coach Lindsey Vande Hoef.
