Coming off the bench, Luizzi registered a game-high 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting (2-for-2 from the free-throw line) to go along with six rebounds, three assists, and two steals in a 75-15 win over Mount Holyoke College last Thursday. Two days later, she produced 13 points (6-of-9 from the floor, 1-of-2 from three-point range), seven rebounds, and two assists in 20 minutes of a 72-35 victory over Simmons College.
