Good for Taiye. She has quietly developed into one of the best inside players in the conference. Gophers would not have won either of the past two games without her efforts.

Awesome! Nice job, Pitts! And they didn’t even mention the double-double that she apparently got gypped out of (per EaganGopher22) by the scorers table.

(Those were our scorers. Can’t we tell the Athletics Office to fix that in the stats they submitted to the NCAA?)

That is awesome. Was the last Rachel Banham or Zauie B?
Pitts is the second Gopher in history to be named the National Player of the Week since the USBWA started handing out the honor during the 2011-12 season. The other to do it was Rachel Banham on Feb. 9, 2016.

Tuesday's announcement, however, is not the first time Pitts has been recognized by the USBWA as she was named the National Freshman of the Week on Feb. 13, 2018.
