Following a career-high performance, and two dominant outings leading her team to victory, Siena senior captain Lily Grenci has been named the MAAC Conference Player of the Week. In front of a nation wide audience via ESPN 3, Grenci exploded for a career best 30 points on Thursday in a 75-60 win over Saint Peter’s. Three days later she scored 20 points in a home win over Loyola.

For the week Grenci, a Preseason All-MAAC First Team selection, averaged 25.0 points, shooting 65.4% (17-23) from the field, along with 8.0 rebounds per game. She also shot an impressive 85.7% (12-14) from the free throw line and showed her versatility by hitting 4-4 from 3-point land. Her performance earned her Player of the Week honors for the second time in her career.
