Book, Heremaia and Leger-Walker all pass scoring milestones

Amiee Book and former St Peter’s School, Cambridge teammates Kendell Heremaia and Krystal Leger-Walker all brought up college career points scoring milestones in recent days.

Heremaia eased past 800 career points in her 105th appearance as Fordham University Rams proved way too good for George Mason in their Atlantic-10 fixture.

Heremaia was all business in the 62-32 victory notching 15 points and 6 rebounds.

She followed that with 12 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists as Fordham completed the weekend home double with victory against George Washington (53-47).

Washington State also recorded a pair of wins – both on the road. They defeated Utah 79-74 and followed that with a 76-63 victory against Colorado with the Leger-Walker’s again prominent.

Against Utah Krystal Leger-Walker stuffed the stats line with 12 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 blocks and 2 steals. 

For Krystal the 12 points moved her past 600 Division I career points having scored 566 in her three years at Northern Colorado University prior to Washington State.

She charged on towards 700 points 48-hours later at Colorado scoring a career high 25 points (previous best 22 points) on 10 from 18 from the field that included 4 of 6 from beyond the arc.

Meanwhile Charlisse continued her prolific start to her collegiate career. She amassed 39 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists and 10 steals across the two games, performances that earned the Tall Ferns guard her third Pac-12 Freshman of the Week Award.

Former Junior Tall Fern Charlotte Whittaker had 2 points and 3 rebounds for Colorado. In the Buffs previous game two days earlier the Cantabrian scored 9 points (4/6FG) and added 5 rebounds, in just 13 minutes, as Colorado stamped on Washington 60-50 . 

Amiee Book has scored in double figures for the fifth straight game but couldn’t prevent California State Fullerton being bumped 79-60 by UC Santa Barbara. Book led Fullerton with 19 points to pass 700 career points for the Titans.

The Titans leading scorer this season made 4 from 9 threes in the contest and overall is shooting 43% from beyond the arc (12/28).

Eva Langton snared 5 rebounds to go along with 9 points as Texas A&M International improved to 2-1 in the Lone Star Conference after prevailing 62-48 against Kingsville.

Former Harbour teammates Emme Shearer (Portland) and Tayla Dalton (St Mary’s) went head to head in West Coast Conference play on Tuesday and it was Shearer who left with the smiles as Portland triumphed 81-58. The ex-Westlake Girls High wing tallied 4 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals and a block.

In contrast Dalton was limited to just a solitary rebound for the struggling Gaels.
