Hunsinger also moved into second place on the school's career blocks list with 94 blocks and is sixth all-time with 518 career rebounds.

Hunsinger tied her career-high with 26 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a 66-41 victory at ODAC-foe Hollins on Jan. 8 and notched 17 points and a season-high 17 rebounds in a 71-55 win over Southern Virginia on Jan. 21.
