Brentwood, TN – Freshman Tiasha Gray, of the Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team, has earned Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Week honors for her performance last week.
Gray averaged 14.5 points in two Lady Gov road contests last week, along with five assists and four steals. She scored a career-high 15 points in Austin Peay’s 67-53 victory at SIU Edwardsville, Saturday, and added six assists, four steals and a career-high tying six rebounds.
She followed that up with a team-high 14 points in Monday night’s loss at Eastern Illinois, shooting an efficient 7-for-12 from the floor and tallying four assists and four steals.
The Clarksville native has wrought havoc on the defensive end over the last few games, averaging 3.4 steals since Jan. 26. She ranks fifth in the OVC with 2.2 steals per game this season.
This is Gray’s first career weekly honor from the OVC. She is the first Austin Peay player to take Freshman of the Week honors since Shelby Olszewski for the week of February 14th, 2012.
The Lady Govs close out the road portion of the 2012-13 schedule at Eastern Kentucky, 3:00pm, Saturday.
