OXFORD, Ohio – For their performances last week senior men’s basketball player Will Felder and senior women’s basketball player Hannah Robertson are Miami’s Athletes of the Week connected by Frontier Communications for the week of Dec. 30-Jan. 5
Felder poured in 22 points to lead all scorers in a hard-fought battle at No. 23/22 Massachusetts in the RedHawks’ lone game of the week. It was his second 20-point scoring effort of the season and the fourth of his Miami career. Felder shot a scorching 83.3 percent from the field, a career high, sinking 10-of-12 field goals. His 10 field goals tied a career high. Although the RedHawks shot a mere six free throws for the game as a team, Felder was perfect from the line, nailing both attempts. He also tallied a game-high-tying seven rebounds and a blocked shot in 34 minutes of action.
This is the third time this season and fourth time in his career that Felder has been named Miami’s Male Athlete of the Week. He last received the honor for the week of Dec. 16-22.
Robertson nearly had a double-double in the MAC opener against Western Michigan on Saturday in Miami’s only game last week. She finished with 18 points and nine rebounds. She drained a team-high three shots from behind the arc. Robertson also had four assists and two steals in 33 minutes of action to contribute to her all-around good game. It was the eighth time in 12 games this season that she has led (or tied for the lead) the RedHawks in scoring.
This is the fourth time this season and fifth time in her career that Robertson has been named Miami’s Female Athlete of the Week. She has earned the honor four of the past seven weeks.
