CHICAGO - Leading the No. 8 ranked Saint Xavier University women's basketball team to a perfect 8-0 record and earning Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) Women's Basketball Player of the Week honors three times in the month of December, junior forward Morgan Stuut (Marcellus, Mich./Three Rivers) was recently named the fourth recipient of the 2013-14 World Hyundai-Saint Xavier University Athlete of the Month award. Stuut will be publicly honored with a certificate from World Hyundai Matteson at Wednesday's 5 p.m. home women's basketball game against CCAC foe Trinity Christian College (Ill.) at the Shannon Center in Chicago.
