Week's Achievements: Smith made his 2012-13 debut Saturday with a convincing 8-2 win over Michigan State's Brandon Fifield in the annual NIU Showcase Meet. After missing the first month of the season with a shoulder injury, the junior came out firing with multiple takedowns in the opening minutes and coasted to his first win of the year. Week's Achievements: Corral led NIU in scoring for the second straight game by matching her previous game's total of 19 points. She scored 15 of her 19 in the second half at Indiana State, going 6-for-11 from the field, 3-for-6 from three-point territory, and 4-for-4 from the free throw line. She also chipped in three rebounds, three assists and a steal without a single turnover in 23 minutes. Her 19-point performance matched her season high and was two shy of tying her career high.
