Chris Forman Named Southern Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week Johnson City, Tenn. -- ETSU senior Chris Forman has been named the Southern Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week for December 12.
A guard from Aurora, WV, Forman led the Lady Bucs to an 80-69 win over SoCon rival Davidson, the squad's first win at Davidson since the 1994-95 season. Forman scored a career-high 32 points, shooting .571 (12-21) from the floor, including 8-12 (.667) from the three-point distance.
Forman led the Lady Bucs at halftime with 10 points before opening up in the second half. In her second half performance, Forman scored 22 points on 8-10 shooting (.800) and 6-7 (.857) from three-point range. Her only missed three was three seconds into the half and she did not miss a shot after the 13:42 mark.
With Davidson creeping back into the game at 65-57 with 5:47 remaining in the game, Forman nailed two huge treys to widen the advantage to 71-57. She scored 14 straight Lady Buc points in a 3:23 span late in the second half, outscoring the Wildcats by eight in that span.
Forman holds the SoCon single-game high for points (32), three-point field goals made (8) and is tied for the top slot in three-point field goal percentage at .667 (8-12). She ranks second among conference leaders in three-point field goals made (2.17 per game), third in three-point field goal percentage (.433) and is among the scoring leaders with 12.7 points per game.
The Lady Bucs return to the hardwood Dec. 15 as face Bradley in the first round of the Denver Pioneer Classic from Denver, Co.
