EUREKA — Once again, Eureka's Olivia Falls (Bloomington, Ill./Bloomington) is the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

After averaging a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds while shooting 58 percent from the field two weeks ago, the 5-foot-8 sophomore delivered another strong performance against Knox last Wednesday to garner honors for the second straight week.

Falls posted a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds while shooting 7-of-11 from the field and 7-of-11 from the free-throw line. She also contributed three assists.

It was her second 20-point game of the season and her fourth time reaching 10 rebounds or more in five tries. She is currently averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds while shooting 60.4 percent from the floor — the second-best field-goal percentage in the league.

This was Eureka's first time receiving back-to-back SLIAC Player of the Week honors since 2018.
