Shambreka Jones gains LSC Defensive Player of the Week honors

 Midwestern State senior Shambreka Jones garnered Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors Monday afternoon as released by league officials.

The Poteet High School product has scored in double figures in each of her last four games including a 12-point effort against TWU before going for 11 points, eight rebounds, four blocks and two steals against Texas A&M-Commerce.

Cameron senior guard Jazzmine Robinson garnered top offensive honors after nothing her second straight double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds in a 59-50 win over Northwestern Oklahoma State Saturday in Lawton.

The Mustangs extended their winning streak to 10 games while improving to 11-1 on the season.
