FOREST, Va. – Washington and Lee junior guard Meg Ingram (Greensboro, N.C./Ragsdale) garnered the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Player of the Week award for women's basketball for the week ending November 21.

During a 1-1 week against two nationally-ranked opponents, Ingram averaged 20.0 points, 4.5 assists, 2.5 steals and 2.0 blocks per game. She shot 36.7 percent (11-30) from the floor, including 40.0 percent (6-15) from behind the arc and 92.3 percent (12-13) from the free-throw line. In both contests, she led the Generals in scoring, while tying a career-high with five steals and setting a career-high with three blocks against Christopher Newport on Saturday.

In a 54-49 win over No. 17 Mary Washington on Tuesday, Ingram finished with a team-high 18 points and five assists, while also collecting one block and one rebound.

On Saturday, Ingram scored a team-high 22 points and also finished with team-highs in blocks (3) and steals (5), in addition to dishing out four assists and collecting one rebound in an 81-76 loss to No. 4 Christopher Newport.
