Two days after one of her best all-around games of the season, Sharon Karungi (Kampala, Uganda/[Northern Oklahoma College]) has been named Horizon League Women's Basketball Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

Karungi was 11-for-15 from the floor as part of a 22-point, 16-rebound evening versus Oakland. Valpo defeated the Golden Grizzlies 84-70 in front of the largest home crowd of the season. The 16 boards were a career-high for the junior. She has finished in double figures in each of the last four tilts for the Crusaders.

Valparaiso (4-21, 2-10 Horizon) will face off against Detroit (4-21, 1-11 Horizon) Wednesday night at 6:00 pm CT at Calihan Hall.
