GSAC Women's Basketball Player of the Week - Shelby Swan of Trinity Washington
Swan (pictured at right) enjoyed an outstanding game last Tuesday, playing a crucial role in the Tigers win versus College of Notre Dame Maryland (85-19). Swan tallied an incredibly efficient 25 points, six assists, and six steals. Twelve of her points came from behind the arc as her 3-point shooting was 80 percent. In the win, Swan scored almost 30 percent of the Tigers total points.
The GSAC sports information directors nominate Player of the Week candidates and then vote on the top two nominees in each sport as selected by the conference office. Player of the Week voting occurs on Tuesdays and the weekly announcement of the winners is released each Wednesday morning.
