BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - For the second-straight week, Texas Southern guard Joyce Kennerson has been named the Southewestern Athletic Conference's Women's Basketball Player of the Week following exceptional performances during games played from Nov. 28 - Dec. 4.

Women's Basketball Player of the Week - Joyce Kennerson, Texas Southern
G | 5-5 | Jr. | Port Arthur, Texas

Kennerson averaged 32.0 points and 7.0 steals per game and joined Texas Southern University’s 1,000-point club while leading the Lady Tigers to a pair of wins last week.

For the second time in as many weeks, Kennerson set a new career scoring high as she torched Sam Houston State for 35 points on 13-of-18 shooting; the junior from Port Arthur made five of her eight 3-point attempts against the Bearkats, which included the 3-point basket that pushed her over the 1,000-point mark with 4:31 left to play in the first half. For good measure, Kennerson also recorded a career-high eight steals at Sam Houston State.

In Monday’s contest against Wiley College, Kennerson overcame two quick first-quarter fouls to score a game-high 29 points and lead the Lady Tigers to their first multigame winning streak of the season. Kennerson connected on six of her eight 3-point tries, including three in a row on consecutive possessions in the second half. 

For the week, Kennerson shot 69.7 percent (23-of-33) from the field, and drained 68.8 percent (13-of-18) of her 3-point tries. She also averaged 4.0 assists per contest, which included five in the win at Sam Houston State.
