Dizeko, 5’ 11’ from Sion, Switzerland, was selected as the GCAA Women’s Division 1 Player of the Week for her performance on the court in the Lady Jets wins over Denmark Technical College and East Georgia.  She averaged 21.5 points, six rebounds, 2.5 assists, 3.5 steals and one blocked shot in the back-to-back victories last week.
