Stanford's Nicole Powell To Drop By Pac-10 Chat Room
Jan. 19, 2001
On Wednesday at 9:00 a.m., as part of the 'Weekly Pac-10 Women's Hoops Chat', Stanford freshman Nicole Powell will drop by to take your questions.
The Cardinal's Nicole Powell is having a tremendous freshman year. Powell, from Phoenix, Ariz., has started 14 games this season, the last five at point guard since Susan King went down with a season-ending injury. Powell leads the Pac-10 in rebounding, averaging 7.9 boards per game, and ranks ninth in the Conference in scoring, averaging 12.9 per game, a team-high for Stanford. In 10 of the last 11 games Powell has scored in double-figures. She is averaging a double-double in Pac-10 action, with 15.0 points and 10.0 rebounds. Powell is a true leader of the Cardinal, especially in the following statistical categories: scoring (12.9 ppg), rebounds (7.9 rpg), assists (110) and steals (27).
Powell demonstrated her dominance in the Conference early on after recording her first two career double-doubles on the first weekend of Pac-10 play. Against Arizona State she notched 17 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and added 15 points and 13 rebounds against Arizona. Her career high is 26 points which she accumulated against Pacific in November while also adding eight rebounds and five steals in 30 minutes of play.
Powell came to Stanford as one of the top recruits in the country. She was a 2000 Parade Magazine First Team All-American. She was a starting forward for the USA Baseball Women's Junior World Championship Qualifying Team that won the goldmedal this July in Mar Del Plata, Argentina. While on the team she averaged 8.2 points and a team-high 6.4 rebounds. She also had a very productive high school career setting school records for career points (2,478) and rebounds (1,760).
Powell won't be stopping by until Wednesday at 9:00 a.m. PT, but feel free to fire off your questions now. We'll save them until she gets there.
