TERRE HAUTE — Tribune-Star staff report

Indiana State women's basketball senior guard Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir has been named this week’s Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Week, announced by the league on Monday.

Abdul-Qaadir posted back-to-back 20-point performances in ISU’s wins over Northern Iowa and Drake as the Sycamores began Missouri Valley Conference play.

Against the Panthers, Abdul-Qaadir recorded a game-high 20 points and a career-high nine rebounds to help her team close out a 60-53 win. She sank four free throws in the final 33 seconds to go 11-for-12 from the line on the evening while also recording a game-high six assists and three steals.

The Memphis transfer worked her magic again versus Drake, as she scored a career-high 26 points and grabbed five boards. She tied for a team-high four assists and picked up two steals in the 90-81 win over the Bulldogs, helping her team reach the 90-point mark for the first time since Feb. 25, 2012. She went 10-for-12 and sinking seven foul shots in the final 55 seconds.

Overall, Abdul-Qaadir went 12-for-25 from the field (.480) and 21-for-24 from the free throw line (.875). On the season, the Springfield, Mass. native is ISU’s second leading scorer with 13.8 points per game and assist leader with 3.7 per game.

The weekly conference honor marks the second of her ISU career, as she was named the Newcomer of the Week on Nov. 18 after her performance against Eastern Illinois.

Abdul-Qaadir is the second ISU women's player to be named MVC Player of the Week. Anna Munn earned the honor on Dec. 9.
