The Fairmont, N.C., guard notched the second double-double of her career in a win over Elon on Jan. 13, scoring 10 points and matching her career high with 10 rebounds, eight of which came on the offensive end of the floor. She also dished off a game-high five assists and grabbed a game-best three steals.
Against Appalachian State on Saturday, Floyd missed her career high by just one point with a team-high 21 against the Mountaineers. She also had a team-high six rebounds and a season- and game-high five steals.
