Starzynski reached the 40-point mark eleven times this season, the most for a Bull ever in the program's history. Against Villanova she scored a career high 63 points. Starzynski has also broken the single-season steals record recoriding 115 steals this season. In addition, she is the first bull to ever average over 30 points per game.
