Meek, who transferred to BW three years ago after beginning her collegiate career at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell in 1992, has helped BW to a 46-8 mark the last two seasons.
Schultz and Meek will lead the Yellow Jackets back onto the court tomorrow to face Otterbein in a KEY OAC game as both BW and Otterbein are tied with Capital University for first place in the OAC. A BW win would give the Yellow Jackets a share of the OAC regular season title for the fourth time in the past six years and the top seed in next week's OAC Tournament.
