FAYETTE, Iowa (January 4, 2008) -- Upper Iowa University (UIU) junior Britney Iredale from Riverside, Calif. has been named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference's (NSIC) Player of the Week. This is the fourteenth time this year a UIU student-athlete has received this honor but the first for a Peacock women's basketball player in the 2007-08 season.
