Women’s Basketball Wins. . .Basically Every Award
What do you get when you beat the top two teams in the Big 12 on the road? Plenty of well-earned awards! It would probably be quicker to list the awards they didn’t win, but I’ll take any chance to hype them up. Oh, they also jumped up 5 spots to #15 in the AP Poll.
Let’s start off with the NATIONAL awards! Sarah Andrews was named ESPN National Player of the Week, averaging 28.5 points per game last week, shooting 50% from the field and 47.1% from three.
The Bears were named ESPN National Team of the Week after two Top 25 wins on the road!
On to Big 12 awards, Sarah Andrews was named Big 12 Player of the Week for the first time ever! Darianna Littlepage-Buggs also earned Big 12 Freshman of the Week honors for the second time this season. Littlepage-Buggs earned her fifth double-double of the season against Kansas. She also led Big 12 rookies with an average of 7 rebounds per game last week.
