Carolyn Appleby leads No. 1-ranked IUP with 16.9 points per game.

IUP is the No. 1 team in the nation in Division II women’s basketball. It would stand to reason the Crimson Hawks also have one of the top point guards.

Senior Carolyn Appleby has been a mainstay in the backcourt for three years and her play of late has kept IUP among the elite.

Appleby on Monday was named the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference West Division Athlete of the Week.

The Greensburg Central Catholic graduate moved into seventh place on the Crimson Hawks’ all-time scoring list with 1,344 points. She led IUP with a season-high 24 points in a 90-54 victory over Slippery Rock.

She added 17 points, seven assists and five rebounds in a 74-57 win over Mercyhurst.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
