The freshman then closed out the regular season with 38 assists in Valpo’s three-set sweep of Southern Illinois on Saturday, leading the offense as the Crusaders hit at a season-best .306 clip in the victory.
For the weekend, Anderson averaged 11.67 assists/set. She ended the regular season ranked third in The Valley, recording 10.58 assists/set. On the season, Anderson has tallied a total of 1,196 assists – just 76 assists shy of cracking Valpo’s single-season top-10 chart in the category.
