Kaitlyn Slagus is commanding the post for Bucknell basketball
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.
