The award is the fourth of Curtis' career after she was previously recognized as NSAA Player of the Week earlier this season (Jan. 15) and twice last season (Nov. 28, Dec. 19).

Curtis is the Bruins leader in both scoring and rebounding with 12.0 points and 8.7 rebounds per game, respectively. Her field goal percentage (45.4), assist total (83), and steal total (39) all rank second on the team.

The Bruins are currently 16-11 overall and 9-4 in NSAA play which is good for third place in the league standings.
