Cummings turned in a pair of double-figure scoring games, including a new career-high total, to lead the Colonials to a pair of conference wins last week.

She started things off by connecting on 4-of-5 field goals and all six free throws at VCU on Wednesday. She finished with 14 points and five rebounds while being a pest on the defensive end with three steals and a block.

The senior guard rose to the occasion in Saturday's win over George Mason. She connected on 10-of-17 field goals and 8-of-9 free throws for a career-high 28 points. She also finished with a game-high eight rebounds along with a steal. Twenty of her 28 points came after halftime as GW erased a four-point deficit at the break to topple previously unbeaten-in-conference George Mason.

For the week, she shot 63 percent (14-of-22) from the field with averages of 21.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 steals.
