Hendrix Sports Information

Hendrix College senior forward Christina Byler has been named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Player-of-the-Week for games played Monday, December 14 through Sunday, December 20.

Byler (Little Rock, Ark./Pulaski Academy) had a pair of 22 point performances to lead Hendrix to a 2-0 week. She also joined the 1,000 career-points club against the University of Texas at Tyler on Saturday, Dec. 19, becoming the 11th player in program history to reach the milestone.

Byler recorded her second double-double of the season against the Patriots with 10 rebounds and was 6-of-13 from the field, including three long balls and 7-of-8 from the charity stripe. She entered the game needing just seven points for her 1,000th career point, which she got on a free-throw with 2:21 left in the first half, fitting, considering she is an 87.3 percent (308-353) career free throw shooter and currently ranks fourth all-time in free throws made. Tori Huggins (2003-07) holds the record with 560 career free throws made and an 85.4 percentage.

Byler currently ranks first in the league with a 17.6 ppg average and third in the SCAC with .921 free throw percentage.
