Texas Southern University women’s basketball redshirt sophomore guard Andriana Avent was named the SWAC’s Impact Player of the Week for her solid performance on the road last weekend.
A redshirt sophomore guard from Sacramento, Calif., Avent had two high-scoring performances as she averaged 24 points in two games at Alcorn State and Jackson State. She scored 25 points to go along with seven rebounds, and a steal during TSU’s outing at Alcorn State. Against Jackson State, Avent contributed 23 points, three rebounds, three steals, and one assist.
Avent has turned into TSU’s go-to scorer as she’s scored 23 or more points in three of the past four games with a high of 35 versus UAPB on Jan. 8.
Avent and the women’s basketball team are back in action this Saturday at 4 p.m. against Alabama A&M inside the H&PE Arena.
