Wisconsin GLO forward Jessica Lindstrom has been named Global Women’s Basketball Association Player of the Week for games played July 8-14.
Lindstrom recorded 14 points, a franchise-record 18 rebounds, three assists and a block during the GLO’s 99-79 home victory over the three-time reigning GWBA playoff champion Flint Monarchs on July 13 at Menominee Nation Arena. The win clinched the outright GWBA regular season championship for the undefeated GLO (11-0, 5-0 GWBA) and the top seed at the league playoffs in August.
Lindstrom shot 5-for-11 from the field and 4-for-5 at the free throw line on the way to notching her team-leading third double-double of the year by the end of the third quarter. Lindstrom’s 18 rebounds, which included eight on the offensive end, broke her own previous team record of 15 boards set against the St. Louis Surge on May 18.
Lindstrom is averaging 8.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in nine games this season. Lindstrom, who has led the team in rebounding each of the past four games and six times overall on the year, has accounted for six of the GLO’s 10 double-digit rebounding performance during the franchise’s inaugural campaign.
Lindstrom becomes the third member of the Wisconsin GLO to garner GWBA Player of the Week honors, joining guards Jolene Anderson (Week 2, Week 4) and Gabbi Ortiz (Week 5).
