➜ Leaupepe has scored 20 points or more in nine of the last 10 games, including three games with 30 or more in that span.
➜ She scored exactly half of Cal Poly’s points in the UH victory. She finished 13-of-26 from the field to go along with seven boards, a season-high tying six steals and two blocked shots in 34 minutes.
➜ Leaupepe returned for her fifth 30-point effort of the season in the UCR contest. She was 12-of-17 from the field and 6-of-8 from the foul line. She chipped in a rebound, three assists, five steals and a block.
➜ Her 11 steals on the week gives her 51 for the season, and puts her in first place in the Big West.
