IUP is dusting aside opponents with swiftness and purpose in the early going of the women’s college basketball season.

Senior point guard Carolyn Appleby is leading the charge.

Appleby, a Greensburg Central Catholic graduate, was lauded Monday as the PSAC Western Division Athlete of the Week.

She led the Crimson Hawks (7-0), who are ranked No. 3 in Division II, to three runaway wins while averaging 18.3 points, 6.3 assists and 4.0 steals.

She scored 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting in a 100-44 win over Cheyney and added five assists. She had 17 points, eight steals and six assists in only 27 minutes of action in a 72-41 win over Kutztown, and handed out a season-best eight assists in an 87-52 win over Millersville. She had 13 of her game-high 18 points in the second half.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
