Averaging 18.5 points per game in ETSU’s two wins to start the season
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (Nov. 18, 2014) – After a pair of impressive performances to begin the 2014-15 season, sophomore guard Shamauria Bridges (Miramar, Fla.) was named Southern Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.
As a vital piece in ETSU’s early-season offensive punch, the sophomore is averaging a second-best in the conference 18.5 points per game. The sharpshooter is also averaging 3.5 makes from behind the three-point line which is tied for tops in the SoCon.
In the Bucs’ season-opening, 81-68, win at UNC Asheville, the guard recorded 15 points including three made three-pointers. Following, the Florida native set the offensive tone for the Blue & Gold in an 84-76 win versus High Point with a career-high 22 points including 13 first half points. Bridges also drained four trifectas against HPU including a huge three late to allow ETSU to pull ahead by seven with 1:11 left to play.
This accolade is the first in the underclassman’s young career.
The Bucs will continue home non-conference play on Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m. when they welcome Appalachian State to Brooks Gym.
