Bell poured in a team-high 21 points in Marquette's victory over Milwaukee last Wednesday, also adding five rebounds and four steals. She converted 9-of-13 shots from the field against the Panthers, helping guide MU to its second win of the season.
The 5-9 freshman followed up her strong effort against Milwaukee with a career-high 22 points against South Dakota. Along with all the scoring she did against South Dakota, Bell also grabbed eight rebounds for the Golden Eagles.
