BETHLEHEM, Pa. – Lehigh women’s basketball’s Frannie Hottinger was named the Patriot League Player of the Week, the league announced Monday afternoon.

Hottinger is the first player in program history to achieve the honor five times in one season as she was recognized as Player of the Week for the second straight week.

Erica Prosser was the only Lehigh player to earn the award four times in a season. Hottinger has now broken that record.

Hottinger averaged 24.5 points in two games last week. She recorded her 10th double-double of the season in a 79-77 win vs. American on Jan. 14 and tallied a team-high of 26 points and 10 rebounds. At Holy Cross, she scored 23 points, grabbed seven rebounds, had an assist and a block.

The Minnesota native has scored in double-figures in all but one game. She is 14th in the nation in scoring (20.9 points per game) and 22nd in the nation in rebounding (10.2 rebounds per game). She also is tied for seventh in the nation in double-doubles.

Hottinger and Lehigh will return to action Wednesday when the Mountain Hawks host Loyola at 6 pm
