Sidney graduate Sylvia Hudson had another big game for Urbana University, and in doing so reached a couple more career milestones.

She went for 36 points in a win over Fairmont State this week, hitting 14-of-18 shots for a 78 percent shooting night. She was also 8-of-10 from the foul line.

In addition, she pulled down 17 rebounds to record the 29th double-double of her collegiate career.

She finished just two points shy of the single-game scoring record she set last season and surpassed the 1,500-point mark as well as the 800-rebound mark for her career. She is only the second player in Urbana University history to reach those figures.

On the season, she is first on the team and seventh in the Mountain East Conference at an even 19 points per game and also leads the team in rebounds (8.1), steals (50) and blocks (26).

She is hitting 62 percent from the field (good for second in the MEC) and 73 percent from the free throw line.

McIver led Edison with 15 points this week in a win over Sinclair. She also added four steals. On the season she is second on the team in scoring at 9.9 per game and is hitting 42 percent from the field.

Edison is 11-2 on the season.

She had 14 points and four assists in a loss to Indiana Tech, and nine points and three assists in a loss to Lourdes.

She is averaging 10.2 points per game, and leads the team in assists with 85 and in steals with 29. Her 85 assists places her second in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.
