INDIANAPOLIS – Bellarmine University’s Sarah Galvin was named Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week on Monday, the league office announced.
In victories over Saint Joseph’s and Indianapolis, the junior forward averaged 19.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists while shooting 64.7 percent from the floor and committing a single turnover.

The Hendersonville, Tennessee, native shot 87.5 percent (7 of 8) from the floor and 83.3 percent (10 of 12) from the free throw line while dishing out four assists against one turnover and blocking one shot in a decisive 85-65 victory.
It was the eighth game this season in which she broke 20 points. Galvin scored 13 points in 15 minutes in the first half to push Bellarmine to a 40-32 halftime lead. She then made all three of her shots from the floor and all five free throws in the second half as the Knights pulled away from the Pumas.
On Saturday, Galvin hauled in a game-high nine rebounds and registered a team-best 14 points while distributing two assists against no turnovers in a convincing 70-50 win over Indianapolis. She totaled 12 points in the first half as the Knights opened up a 39-28 lead.
