Thomas Named LSC Offensive Player of the Week

Midwestern State senior forward Corbin Thomas garnered Lone Star Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors Monday afternoon when league officials announced weekly awards.
 
The transfer from Missouri State erupted for a season-high 27 points and pull down 15 rebounds as the Mustangs clinched their fifth LSC title in the last seven years Wednesday night against Texas A&M-Commerce.
 
Thomas added his ninth double double of the season with a 19-point, 12-rebound effort Saturday at Tarleton State.
 
The 6-8 Chicago native shot 60.7 percent from the field (17-of-28) and was 11-of-14 from the charity stripe (78.6 percent) and even connected on his first 3-pointer of the season against A&M-Commerce.
 
For the week, Thomas averaged 23.0 points and 15.0 rebounds in 31.5 minutes per game.
 
The offensive award is Thomas' first of the season, but he has claimed three defensive player of the week honors.
 
Tarleton State junior forward Jon Cathey-Macklin garnered top defensive honors after averaging five rebounds and two blocks as the Texans rebounded from a loss at Cameron on Wednesday.
 
Midwestern State plays host to Paul Quinn for Senior Day Sunday afternoon at D.L. Ligon Coliseum. Tipoff is set for 3:30 p.m.

Carter Takes 5th Weekly LSC Defensive Honor

Midwestern State forward Andrea Carter picked up her sixth Lone Star Conference weekly award of the season as she was named the LSC's Defensive Player of the Week for the fifth time by the conference office.
 
Carter directed the Midwestern State defense as they remained in the hunt for an LSC title with a pair of second half come-from-behind victories last week.
 
The 5-10 sophomore from Angleton, Texas recorded her 13th and 14th double-doubles of the season with 15 points and 14 rebounds in the Mustangs first win in Stephenville since Dec. 2, 2003 with a 71-63 win at Tarleton State.  She also tallied 11 points and 12 rebounds in a 70-62 win over Texas A&M-Commerce.
 
Carter averaged 13.0 points and 13.0 rebounds and 3.5 steals for the week, to go with her 2.0 assists as well.  She also recorded one blocked shot (at Tarleton) on the week, as she helped MSU hold their opponents to 62.5 points a game and shooting 36.1 percent from the floor.  She grabbed exactly one-third of MSU's rebounds during the two games.
 
Carter is joined by West Texas A&M forward Devin Griffin who was named the LSC Offensive Player of the Week by the conference office.
 
It's the fifth time Carter has claimed the defensive award and she won the offensive award the first week of the season.
 
MSU closes the regular season on Wednesday against Texas Woman's in LSC play.  Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
