WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Whitney Taylor poured in a season-high 18 points to lead Midwestern State to a road win over Angelo State last week to earn Lone Star Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors.

The senior guard from Melissa connected on four of her seven shots from the field -- all 3-pointers -- and was 6-of-8 from the charity stripe to lead the Mustangs to their third win all time over the Rambelles at the Junell Center Thursday night to improve to 6-2 on the season and to 3-0 in league play.

Taylor connected on four triples for the second consecutive game to move into sole possession of third place on MSU's all-time made 3-pointers list with 129 and needs another four to jump Andrea Buben (132 3s/2006-10) into second.

Taylor leads the Mustangs in scoring at 12.0 points per game and ranks third in the LSC with 2.5 made 3-pointers per game.

Angelo State senior guard Marquita Daniels earned top defensive honors making a combined 13 steals last week as the Rambelles split games with Midwestern State and Cameron. She posted eight of those steals against the Mustangs.

Midwestern State takes on former LSC rival Abilene Christian in exhibition play Saturday afternoon at Moody Coliseum in Abilene. Tipoff is set for 2 p.m.
