MSU News: Markham Wins Player of the Week

Midwestern State's Nolisha Markham garnered Lone Star Conference South Division Offensive Player of the Week honors Monday when the league announced its weekly awards.
 
The 5-10 senior from Tulsa closed her collegiate career with a flourish as she averaged 21.5 points and seven rebounds a game while ripping the nets at a 72.6-percent clip (16-of-22) including 5-of-8 marksmanship from the arc.
 
Markham matched a career high with 27 points on 11-of-14 shooting with two 3-pointers to go along with eight rebounds against LSC Championship qualifying Angelo State Wednesday night at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.
 
She then helped the Mustangs to their first win over Abilene Christian at Moody Coliseum since 1992 by netting a team-high 16 points and six rebounds on 5-of-8 shooting with three treys.
 
Midwestern State finished the season with its most LSC South Division wins since the 2003-04 season.
