Carter Earns 3rd LSC Defensive Honor of the Season

Midwestern State's Andrea Carter garnered Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors for the third time this season as released Monday afternoon by league officials.

The 5-9 senior forward from Angleton notched her seventh double-double of the season Wednesday against Angelo State and followed with a 15-point, 7-rebound effort to go along with a season-high seven steals Saturday at Texas A&M-Kingsville.

Carter finished with 14 points, 14 rebounds, one blocked and one steal while helping the Mustangs limit Rambelles to 41.5-percent shooting in a 69-61 win at D.L. Ligon Coliseum.

MSU then held Texas A&M-Kingsville to 39.1-percent shooting from the floor in a 66-53 victory over the Javelinas.

Carter has scored in double figures in each of her last seven games averaging 15.1 points and 8.6 rebounds a game during the stretch while shooting 58.8 percent from the field.

She needs six rebounds to move past Serena Carter (939 rebounds from 1989-93) into second place on MSU's all-time rebounding list.

West Texas A&M sophomore guard Sasha Watson earned Offensive honors after she averaged 13 points and 6.7 assists per game while helping the Lady Buffs to three wins last week including a 19-point effort in WT's 87-86 overtime win at Tarleton State.

Midwestern State takes on Cameron Saturday afternoon at Aggie Gym in Lawton. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.
