It might seem like a broken record, but the sound continues to be sweet for Ashland University's women's basketball team.

For the fourth time this season and the eighth time in her Eagle career, Ashland University junior forward/center Laina Snyder is the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference South Division Player of the Week, as released on Monday (Jan. 16) afternoon.

For the No. 1-ranked Eagles in home wins over Ohio Dominican on Thursday (Jan. 12) and Hillsdale on Saturday (Jan. 14), Snyder averaged 20.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 3.5 steals and 2.0 blocks per game, while hitting 48.5 percent from the floor and 90.0 percent from the free-throw line. Snyder recorded her 35th career double-double against the Chargers, posting 17 points and pulled down 16 rebounds.

Snyder has 1,304 career points, six away from tying Gweynn Hampel (1,310) for seventh place on Ashland's all-time scoring list. She also has 777 career rebounds and 236 career steals, both good for fifth in AU history.

Snyder is the GLIAC's third-leading scorer (18.0 ppg.), and the circuit's leader in rebounding (9.9 rpg.) and steals (3.5 spg.).

Of the nine 2016-17 GLIAC South Players of the Week, seven have been Eagles – Snyder in Weeks 2, 3, 8 and 9, junior forward Andi Daugherty in Weeks 5 and 7 and freshman guard Jodi Johnson in Week 4.

Ashland (18-0, 10-0) will go on the road for its only game of the week on Thursday (Jan. 19) at 5:30 p.m. against Lake Erie (7-9, 5-5).
