PRINCETON, N.J. - Columbia women's basketball first-year
Bailey Ott was selected as the Ivy League Rookie of the Week, as announced by
the conference on Monday.
Ott (Pompton Lakes, N.J.) stepped it up in a big way to help
lift Columbia to its first win of the season against Fairleigh Dickinson on
Sunday. The 5-11 forward/center scored a game-high 20 points on 10-of-15
shooting from the field while grabbing eight rebounds in the 54-47 victory.
"It is really a tribute to someone who puts in so much extra
time to be rewarded for her hard work," said Columbia women's basketball head
coach Paul Nixon. "Bailey Ott was the key to our first victory of the
season and we are thrilled about her continuing to play well for us."
Earlier last week, Ott finished one point and one rebound
shy of her first career double-double as she recorded nine points and nine
boards in a 61-47 loss to Wagner.
Ott and the Lions (1-3) will look to roll at Morgan State on
Friday, November 23 for a 2 p.m. contest.
