A junior guard from Clarion, Iowa, Haupt had a breakout season in 2014-15. She led the team in scoring, averaging 10.5 points and 2.7 rebounds after averaging just 5.2 in her first two seasons. She put up 11.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in conference play and shot better than 40 percent from the field.
