ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- Junior guard Michelle Young (Woodbury, Minn./Woodbury) picked up her third weekly honor of the young season, with the league office naming her the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week Wednesday.

Young, who was also named the Valley Player of the Week and the Bradley Country Financial Scholar-Athlete of the Week, scored a career-best 32 points on 11-of-19 shooting in Bradley’s victory against Illinois last Friday.  She also added six rebounds, four assists, one block and a pair of steals.  In the second half, Young hit 4-of-6 shots and had two rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals to help the Braves erase an 11-point halftime deficit. 

Her 32 points tied for the eighth highest scoring output in school history and were the most by a Bradley player in a home contest since Genny Mueller had 33 points against Indiana State on March 6, 2004.  In addition, Young had the most points in a season opener for a Bradley player and helped BU open the season with a victory against a BCS opponent for the first time since 1998-99.  An elementary education (English) major, Young owns a 3.90 cumulative grade point average. 
 
To qualify for Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week laurels, student-athletes must carry a cumulative grade-point average of 3.20, completed at least one academic year at a Valley institution and must be at least a sophomore in academic standing.

Young is averaging a MVC leading 26.0 points per game and has helped the Braves to their first 2-0 start to a season since 2008-09.  Bradley will be trying to start a season 3-0 for the first time since 2004-05 when they take on Stony Brook Friday at 9:30 p.m. in the second game of a men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader at Carver Arena, which starts at 7 p.m. with the men’s basketball team facing Chicago State.
