During the week, Tvrdy averaged 22 points per game and 9.5 rebounds per game while shooting a hot 19-for-31 from the floor as well as dishing out two assists per contest.

Tvrdy set personal records for herself scoring a career-high 28 points to lead the Rams to a big 72-43 win over San Diego State. During that game, Tvrdy shot 12-for-18 from the floor and pulled down 10 boards, picking up her third double-double of the season.

Tvrdy’s presence was felt again for the Rams during their late win over New Mexico in a dramatic fashion. During this game, Tvrdy hit a late go ahead 3-pointer in overtime to lift the Rams to a 74-71 win over New Mexico. Tvrdy finished with 16 points, nine rebounds and three assists in the victory.

CSU women’s basketball returns to the hardwood this week for conference matchups at Wyoming on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. before heading to Nevada to take of the Wolf Pack.
