Week's Achievements: Jared Volk helped clear up paths all game for Huskie rushers on Senior Day. On Tuesday, November 26, Volk started his final home game for NIU against the Broncos. He and the rest of the offensive line made lanes for NIU rushers to accumulate over 400 yards during the game, en route to a 33-14 victory for the Huskies. Volk and company took on the first line of rushers as they watched teammate Jordan Lynch break the NCAA record for most rushing yards by a quarterback, as he ran for 321 yards overall. Week's Achievements: Amanda Corral was the Huskies leading scorer in both games it played at the Aggie Hotel Encanto Thanksgiving Classic. After scoring 16 points in the tournament opener against host New Mexico State, Corral closed the tournament with a 25 point performance against Lamar, a new career-high. Corral was 10-of-16 from the field in the contest and scored 16 of her points in the second half. The junior shot over 50 percent in the tournament, 15-for-28, going 3-for-5 behind the arc, and also went 8-for-10 at the free throw line in the tournament. Defensively against the Lady Cardinals, Corral made two steals which resulted in two fast break layups and also blocked one shot.
