LARAMIE, Wyo. -
Following are periodic highlights of selected University of Wyoming student-athletes, detailing recent performances and their contributions to their respective UW teams.
Hanna Zavecz, F, 6-0, Fr., Melbourne, Australia (Australian Inst. of Sport)
Freshman Hanna Zavecz
Hanna Zavecz, a freshman from the Australian Institute of Sport in Melbourne, Australia, showed just what she could contribute to the Cowgirl Basketball team last Sunday against the University of Northern Iowa. Even though she has had a solid season up until now, the freshman forward had a breakout game against the Lady Panthers when she poured in 25 points, six boards, two blocks, and two assists. Her 25 points were a career high. Zavecz has led the Cowgirls in scoring twice this year, once in rebounds and assists, and all games in blocked shots. Currently, she is averaging 12 points a game, 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals, and 1.75 blocked shots. She is doing all of this in 29.50 minutes per game. The Cowgirls are grateful to have the Awesome Aussie on the team this winter and hope it turns into a postseason run in March. The Cowgirls have a home game against the Lady Buffs of Colorado on Wednesday and then host Texas Pan-American on Monday the sixth of December.
Alex Dunn, F/C, 7-0, 240, Sr., 3L, Sioux Rapids, Iowa (Sioux Central)
Senior Alex Dunn
Alex Dunn, a senior from Sioux Central High School in Sioux City, Iowa, has helped lead the Wyoming Cowboy Basketball team to a 3-1 start early on this season. Even though the senior center struggled against Arizona early this week, his numbers are still impressive. Against the University of Texas at Arlington last weekend, Dunn had 11 points while pulling down nine boards in the 86-79 Cowboy win. Dunn has led the Cowboys in rebounding every game this season except the Arizona game, including a season high 15 against Princeton. Dunn is currently second on the team in field goals made with 15, even though he only attempts a little less than eight per game. He is also currently third on the team averaging 9.8 points per game and he is first on the team also averaging the same amount of rebounds (9.8) per game with 39 for the year. By averaging that many rebounds, Dunn currently sits third in the Mountain West Conference in rebounds per game. Dunn hopes to keep putting up solid numbers for the Cowboys the rest of the season as he and the rest of his teammates travel north to revive the rivalry between UW and Montana State this weekend in Billings.
