Bucknell’s Kaitlyn Slagus, shown in this file photo, scored a career-high 30 points in a recent victory against Brown.

Kaitlyn Slagus has been one of the top post players in the Patriot League for what seems like, forever.

The senior at Bucknell continues to churn out big minutes for the Bison (12-4, 3-1) and she powered them to a pair of recent wins to bring in conference recognition.

The 6-foot-2 Slagus, a former all-state player at Belle Vernon, was named Patriot League Player of the Week for the second time this season.

Maybe it had something to do with the opponents. Slagus is 6-1 all-time against Army West Point and 7-0 vs. Lafayette after she helped defeat both last week.

She had 16 points and eight rebounds as the Bison toppled Army West Point, 66-52.

She then had a game-high 20 points, 18 in the second half, and grabbed six rebounds in a 56-47 win over Lafayette.

For the season, she is averaging 12.8 points and 7.5 rebounds. She had 30 points against Brown and also scored 20 against Iona. She had double-doubles against Monmouth, Quinnipiac and Massachusetts.

In 114 career games, Slagus has posted 11.0 points and 7.2 rebounds, starting 101 of those games.

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.
