Midwestern State junior forward Andrea Carter was named the Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week by the conference office for her strong play in the Mustangs only game last week.
Carter led the Mustangs in their 73-60 win over East Central (Okla.) last Saturday. She collected her third double-double of the year with her 15 points and 10 rebounds against the Tigers in Midwestern's only contest last week due to final examinations.
Carter connected on 6-of-7 shots from the field and hit all three of her free throw attempts. Her .857 shooting from the floor was the highest allowed by East Central this season. She also snagged a steal in the contest as the Mustangs held East Central to their third-lowest scoring output this season.
Carter becomes MSU's first basketball player selected as a Lone Star Conference Player of the Week this season.
Joining Carter this week is offensive player of the week Rosalie Cutri of Texas A&M-Kingsville. On the men's side, Texas A&M-Kingsville's Jorda Jahr was picked the offensive player of the week, while Angelo State's Kenny Williams was the defensive player of the week.
