She is averaging 26.0 points and 17.8 rebounds in her last seven contests.
Seifert against the Cougars shot 8-for-22 from the floor and 10 of 17 from the free throw line for her second-straight 26-point output. She hauled in eight offensive rebounds and 12 defensive rebounds to notch her second-consecutive 20-rebound game while adding an assist and steal on the night.
