Career night earns Henson NWC recognition

In recognition of reaching new career heights, Linfield’s Katelyn Henson has been honored as the Northwest Conference Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week, as announced Tuesday following a vote of the league’s sports information directors.

Henson averaged 23.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals during the ever-difficult annual trip to eastern Washington to face off against two of the league’s top four teams: Whitman and Whitworth. Her performance deemed her worthy to receive Linfield’s first conference student-athlete weekly honor this season. It was the first such award for Henson in her 1½-year career with the Wildcats.

On a night when Linfield had no other scorers in double figures, Henson pumped in a career-high 28 points as the ‘Cats hung with Whitman for one half of action. She also hauled in eight rebounds, marking the 11th time this season she has corralled five or more boards in a single game.

The following evening at Whitworth, the sophomore shared game-high honors with 19 points and eight rebounds to go along with a game-high three steals, three assists and one block.

Henson, who has emerged as Linfield’s leading scorer at the halfway point of the season, ranks in the top five among league leaders for both scoring (13.2) and rebounding (9.1). She has scored in double figures in each of the past nine contests, including two 20-plus performances.

Linfield (1-12, 0-7 NWC) seeks its first Northwest Conference victory Tuesday evening at Willamette. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. inside the Cone Field House.
