Joliet, Ill. - Saint Xavier University junior guard Marissa Young (Monroe, Wis./St. Joseph's College/Monroe) was named the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Women's Basketball Division I Player of the Week Tuesday after a huge performance in a win over Holy Cross College (Ind.) last week. Young scored a career-best 28 points in the game and also tallied four rebounds, three assists and four steals as the No. 6 ranked Cougars picked up a 92-61 victory in their only game of the week. It was the second time in the past three weeks that she has earned the conference's weekly honor.

Young is currently second in the entire NAIA in scoring averaging 23.17 points a game. She is also fourth in the nation in steals per game with a 4.50 average. Young has helped lead the Cougars to a 5-1 mark to open the 2010-11 campaign. SXU has claimed three of the first four CCAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week recognitions with Young capturing two (November 16 & 30) and senior guard Shalonda Young (Chicago, Ill./Crane Tech) winning the first one of the season back on November 9.

Saint Xavier (5-1 overall) hosts Judson University (Ill.) tonight for a non-conference match-up at the Shannon Center in Chicago. The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip-off.
