Ingersoll earns MAC Player of the Week awardWritten by Zach Davis | | email@example.com
UT guard Courtney Ingersoll was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week on Feb. 6, the first time receiving the honor in her four-year career.
The senior guard averaged 21.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in a pair of Rocket victories last week against Akron and Kent State, which included a career-high 23 points against the Zips.
Ingersoll ranks third in the nation in three-point percentage, hitting nearly 46 percent of her shots behind the arc. Those numbers were bolstered by last week’s success as the senior made 10-of-17 triples (58 percent).
Ingersoll became the third member of the UT women’s basketball team to be named Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week in 2012. Previously junior center Yolanda Richardson earned the award twice; sophomore point guard Andola Dortch received it once.
The Rockets (15-7, 8-2 MAC) have a midweek break but return to the court on Feb. 11 when they take on rival and league-unbeaten Bowling Green (20-3, 10-0) at noon at Savage Arena.
