Fall Rivers’ Leisemann Earns Second NACC Women’s Basketball Weekly Award

Wisconsin Lutheran College forward Sam Leisemann (Fall River, Wis.) has been named Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Women’s Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Jan. 10-16, 2022, as selected by the league’s sports information directors.

Leisemann, a sophomore, averaged 13.5 points and 14.0 rebounds per game to lead the No. 14/23 Warriors to a pair of NACC wins last week. She recorded her fifth career double-double on Saturday (Jan. 15) with an 18-point, 15-rebound performance in a 59-40 win over Dominican. Earlier in the week, Leisemann grabbed 13 rebounds in a 50-47 win over previously NACC unbeaten St. Norbert. She narrowly missed a double-double against the Green Knights, finishing with nine points. Leisemann shot 57.1 percent (12-of-21) from the floor for the week.

This is the second time this season that Leisemann has earned a NACC weekly award.
