Dowdy also averaged 2.3 assists. Dowdy led the way for the Hawks in their win against the Wildcats of Wheelock with a double-double including 18 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 assists. Then in Saturday's home victory over Elms, the junior recorded her eighth double-double of the season and her sixth in the last seven games as she scored 15 points with a game-high 19 rebounds, shooting five of nine from the floor.

Dowdy was also named Becker Athlete of the Week for the same period.

At press time, Dowdy lead the WACBA in rebounding for the season at 11.5 boards per game.

Becker is back on the court on Tuesday when they play host to Bay Path University at 7:00 p.m. Elms host Wheelock in their next game, also on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m.
