honor for Herbert
Twelve seconds into Saturday’s game against Northwestern State, the University of Central Arkansas’ Megan Herbert receiving the game ball after she opened the contest with her 2,000th career point – making her just the seventh player in Southland Conference history to reach that mark and putting her alongside Baylor’s Brittney Griner as the only two active NCAA women’s basketball players with 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds. She also becomes just the third player in league history with more than 2,000 points and 1,200 rebounds, joining McNeese State’s Pat Jean (1980-83) and Northwestern State’s Joskeen Garner (1993-96).
Monday she was voted as the Southland’s Player of the Week by the league’s sports information directors for the second consecutive week, third time this season and the 16th time in her career.
In the wins over Northwestern State and Stephen F. Austin, Herbert averaged 24 points and 7.5 rebounds and committed just one turnover while playing an average of 39 minutes per game to help the Sugar Bears remain as the league’s last team unbeaten in conference play.
Herbert was also selected as the Southland’s Player of the Week by College Sports Madness, marking the second week in a row and third time this season she earned that accolade.
