Junior guard DeMoria White has driven the women’s basketball team to a 2-1 start featuring an exponentially improved offense. White emerged as the catalyst for the Eagles’ first 100-point game since 1979 in a 107-52 win over the La Sierra Eagles. The third year guard has averaged 20.3 points per game thus far, including a 25-point game against the Bethesda University Flames on Nov. 2 and a 21-point game on Nov. 5. In the absence of senior guard Annie Park last season, the offense ran efficiently through White. However, the 5’4” guard from Inglewood, Calif. now finds herself in the same starting lineup as Park and has made an even larger impact this season by helping Biola form one of the most potent backcourts in the Golden State Athletic Conference. White’s explosive play has emphatically complimented the finesse of Park. Because of her dynamic efforts, White has earned this week’s Chimes’ Athlete of the Week.

Stats: 27.5 MPG, 23 PPG, .550 FG%, 100 FT%, .488 3 PT%, 3.5 RPG
