Bateman posted two 40+ assists matches in the sweep of then-No. 1 California and No. 2 Stanford at home last weekend, averaging 13.83 assists per set. She had 42 assists, seven digs and two blocks against the top-ranked Bears, while directing the offense to a .271 hitting percentage. Against the Cardinal, she collected 41 assists, nine digs and one block, helping the Women of Troy extend their win streak to four matches.
