Hackert update

I take it all back. USI’s Anna Hackert is not, I repeat NOT, in a slump. She just happened to have two off games and why not — even she’s human. But she’s an amazing human. Until Saturday’s win at Saint Joseph’s, USI had not had any outside shooting to speak of for the last nine games, going 31-for-136 from beyond the 3-point arc. Still, Hackert has continued to put up double-doubles in points and rebounds more often than not despite ferocious double-teaming and even triple-teaming. After those two aforementioned “bad” games she threw down 27 points and grabbed 10 rebounds against Indianapolis, then came back with 13 points and 13 boards against St. Joe. Those give her nine double-doubles for the season. For the year she’s averaging 15.0 points and 9.7 rebounds per game. Numbers like that must mean she’s a lock for first team all-GLVC and all-Midwest Region. She might even have a good shot at being named a D-II all-American.
