Warmack recorded 14 points and posted 16 rebounds Feb. 26 in the Bemidji State women’s basketball team’s season-ending loss to No. 9 Wayne State College in the first round of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference/Sanford Health Tournament. The game marked her 13th double double of the season to establish the BSU single-season record in that category. She added four blocks, a steal, an assist and turned the ball over just once in 34 minutes of play.
Warmack was named All-NSIC Second Team after she finished the conference season second in blocks (50, 2.3 bpg), fourth in field goal percentage (52.6%), sixth in rebounding (9.3 rpg) and 15th in scoring (15.3 ppg).
She finished her career holding the BSU program record for blocks in a season (56) and a career (137). Her 267 rebounds this season ranked fourth on the school's single-season list, while her 711 career rebounds sits sixth all-time. Warmack completed her career with 1,107 points to sit 14th in BSU history.
This week’s Beaver Pride Athlete of the Week selection marks the third of 2013-14 for Warmack and the sixth of the season for a member of the BSU women’s basketball team.

Jubinville had a hand in three of BSU's four goals in the 4-1 series finale, setting a new personal single-game high with three points. He got the Beavers on the board with his fourth goal of the season at the 14:51 mark of the first. He also scored at the 10:02 mark of the second to put BSU up 3-1 and added his 10th assist of the season on BSU's fourth goal late in the second period.
