SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – On the last weekend of 2018 we began Summit League play and had stellar performances across the League. As we leave 2018 and head into 2019, North Dakota's Lexi Klabo earns the final Summit League Player of the Week honor of 2018 after an impressive outing in the Fighting Hawks first-ever Summit League game.
Klabo had an impressive all-around outing in her first career Summit League contest. She led the Fighting Hawks in scoring, rebounding, blocks and finished one assist shy of tying for the team lead in that category as well.
