OGDEN, Utah-- University of North Dakota senior forward Madi Buck (Bismarck, N.D.) picked up a pair of honors following her performance in UND's 88-83 win over arch-rival North Dakota State Saturday. Buck was the Big Sky Conference's co-Player of the Week and also earned CollegeSportsMadness.com's weekly honor for the league.

Buck poured in a career-high 37 points, including 26 in the second half alone, to help North Dakota rally from a seven-point deficit in the final minutes. The Bismarck, N.D., native scored seven points in the final 1:27 and had several key plays down the stretch including a pair of steals as UND won its fourth straight in the series with the Bison.

Buck's 37 points are tied for the seventh-most for a UND player in a single game and most in the school's Division I era. She finished the day 10-for-15 from the field, including 5-of-6 from distance, in the win. She added nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block. Her 37 points are the most by a Big Sky Conference player this season.

Buck has scored 16 points or more in six of seven games this season and has led North Dakota in scoring six times. She is second in the Big Sky with a 19.4 points per game average.

She was also featured on espnW.com's "She Also Starred" in the website's "Weekly Wrapup". read more about it here: http://espn.go.com/ncw/notebook/_/page/notebook_131215/weekend-wrap-south-dakota-state-jackrabbits-pull-week-biggest-upset

This is Buck's second career Big Sky Player of the Week honor after winning it following UND's win at Utah last season. She shares this week's honor with Eastern Washington's Aubrey Ashenfelter.
