We already reviewed eight of the biggest stories of the week in D2 women's basketball. But so much happened the first week of the new year, we decided to cover eight more storylines in this BONUS WRAP. We have one story per region, as usual. Let's get to it.

In 2005, Amanda Blazetic became the owner of the all-time career scoring record at Notre Dame (OH) with 1,600 total points.
In Sunday's game against Concord, Martha Nagbe needed eight points to break the record. She went off for 28 to give her 1,621 in her career. With the season only halfway over, it’s safe to say Nagbe will hold on to the record for some time.
When asked if breaking the career record was a personal goal of hers, Nagbe responded, “Not necessarily. I knew it was possible, but my main goal isn’t scoring. It’s doing whatever I can defensively and offensively that is positively contributing to our team and our success. Winning and having fun no matter what have been what I’ve been committed to the most. There’s always more you can do so gaols mean little to our team.”
Nagbe seems to be the positive type of role model and leader that any team wants to have on their team, and is an example of hard work leading to great things.
