Ivanovic Named SAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week
ROCK HILL, SC -¬ Catawba College's Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) has been named the South Atlantic Conference women's basketball Player of the Week for the week ending January 9, 2011. It was announced by the league office on Monday.
Ivanovic, a senior guard, helped keep Catawba undefeated in the league in two come-from-behind wins.

Two of her three-pointers came in the final five minutes, including the game clincher with 23 seconds to play.
At Anderson, Ivanovic scored a season-high 26 points and rallied Catawba with a pair of late three-pointers, converting the final one into a four-point play for a 69-67 edge with 1:31 left. She had 17 second-half points, including 12 in the final seven minutes as the Lady Indians rallied from a 10-point deficit.
For the week, Ivanovic averaged 20 points and 6.5 rebounds a contest, while canning 10 three-pointers.
