Caught the end of this game once it had been decided. Great job.

Cardano-Hillary is just a junior, too. That top spot is looking awfully possible...

"FAIRFAX, Va. – For the first time this season, and fourth time of her career, junior women's basketball player Nicole Cardaño-Hillary has been named Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

The Madrid, Spain native averaged 32.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game to lead Mason (4-1) to two wins during the week of Nov. 18-24. She shot 51.1 percent from the field, 50.0 percent from deep and 93.8 percent from the free throw line.

The 5-foot-7 point guard dropped a career-high 41 points to go along with a season-high seven rebounds in Mason's first-ever win over Penn State, 78-68, on Sunday in University Park, Pa. She shot 50.0 percent from the field (13-26), 40.0 percent from deep (2-5) and 92.9 from the free throw line (13-14).

Her 41 points are tied for the third most by a Division I women's basketball player this season and tied for the sixth most in Atlantic 10 history. The mark is also the most by an Atlantic 10 women's basketball player this year.

In Mason's 73-55 win over American on Thursday, Cardaño-Hillary scored 17 of her team-high 23 points in the second half, hitting 7-of-12 from the floor during the third and fourth quarters combined. She finished shooting 3-of-5 from behind the arc (.600) and 9-of-17 from the floor (.529).

The reigning A-10 Player of the Year is averaging 22.6 points per game – good for 11th in Division I women's basketball.

Cardaño-Hillary was named to the Nancy Lieberman Award watch list on Oct. 21, given to the nation's top point guard. She returns to action Tuesday at home against Kansas City. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at EagleBank Arena."

"FAIRFAX, Va. – Imagine being thousands of miles away from your home country to play basketball for a university right outside the capital of the United States. This is the reality for four student-athletes on the George Mason women's basketball team. From Finland to Lithuania, Mason strives itself on recruiting players from overseas."

"Cardaño-Hillary also notices the difference between basketball here than overseas, 'It's a completely different game and I've noticed that much more since I went back and played with the Spanish National Team. It's a lot more physical overseas, even the shot clock is different. In the end, it's still basketball and it's still a great sport.'"

"Head coach Nyla Milleson commented on how it's paying off on the court, 'Our international student-athletes play a different style of basketball which brings a new skill level to our team. The international flavor that we have at George Mason University has been a great fit for our international recruiting.'"
