MSU's Carver Takes Weekly Award

Midwestern State University senior Savannah Carver has been named the Lone Star Conference Women's Offensive Player of the Week for her performance for the Mustangs in wins against Abilene Christian and Angelo State last week.
 
Carver, a 5-10 guard from Amarillo who graduated from Randall High School, directed the attack that has led the Mustangs (16-4, 12-2) to qualifying for the Lone Star Conference Tournament for the fist time in nine years.
 
She scored 24 points in the Mustangs' 90-82 win at Abilene Christian and followed it with 20 points in MSU's 83-70 triumph over Angelo State.  For the week Carver shot 50 percent from the floor (14-28), 41.7 percent from the 3-point arc (5-12) and 91.7 percent from the foul line (11-12).  She added four rebounds (2.0 per game), four steals (2.0 per game) and one assist.
 
Carver has four 20-plus scoring efforts in the last five games and has moved onto MSU's top 20 all-time scoring list with 891 career points.  She's also moved into the top 10 at MSU all-time with her 90 career 3-point field goals.
 
It's the second time in three weeks Carver has been honored as the player of the week by the league office.

Sabelle Diata of Cameron was named the LSC Women's Defensive Player of the Week, while Incarnate Word's Chris Johnson and Texas A&M-Kingsville's Marshall Bonds III were selected as the LSC Men's Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.
 
The Mustangs are in action Wednesday night when they host Incarnate Word at 6 p.m. in D.L. Ligon Coliseum.  It's the first game of a doubleheader with the MSU men to follow about 8 p.m.
