MORAGA, Calif. -- After scoring a career-high 26 points at Northern Iowa last weekend, Saint Mary's junior guard Jorden Page was named this week's SMC Student-Athlete of the Week.
A native of Maroochydore, Queensland, Australia, Page went 10-of-14 from the field and made 6 of his 9 attempts from behind the 3-point arc. He also grabbed two rebounds, handed out two assists and registered a steal in the Gaels' 82-75 loss. He was the only player on the team to score in double-figures.
Page easily eclipsed his previous high of 19 points at Santa Clara last season. He also set career bests for made and attempted field goals and his 36 minutes of action was a season-long.
Page and the Gaels return to action Thursday with a 7 p.m. home contest against the University of Rhode Island. Tickets are available online via SMCGaels.com or by calling the SMC Athletic Ticket Office on Wednesday or Thursday at (925) 631-GoTx.
