When it comes to rebounding, fewer players do it better than Palmer’s Allie Grazulis.

The 5-foot-11 forward for Colorado School of Mines is averaging 9.7 rebounds per game, which is second in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference and No. 48 in NCAA D2.

Grazulis, of Colony High fame, has grabbed nine or more rebounds in eight of 12 games this season.

The junior had 12 rebounds in a 75-70 victory over Colorado Christian.

She is coming off a 26-points, 12-rebound game against Black Hills State.

During a tournament in Anchorage, Grazulis pulled down a career-high 20 boards.

Rangy, active and strong, she is a force under her own basket with three games with at least seven offensive rebounds.
