Blom's Career-High, Game-Winner Secure Weekly Award
Dominican's Kayla Blom has been named the Northern Athletics Conference Women's Basketball Student-Athlete of the Week for games of November 28-December 4.

On Saturday versus Lakeland, Blom scored 13 points in just 20 minutes of action and logged a 62.5 shooting percentage from the floor -- 3-of-4 from 3-point range -- which included the game-winning 3 with just 0.1 seconds left on the clock for the 71-68 final.
