BATON ROUGE, La. -- ULM guard Jasmine Shaw has been named the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Women's Basketball Player of the Week following a career day Sunday in the Warhawks' 73-55 victory over Southern Miss.
The junior from Flower Mound, Texas netted a career-best 27 points against the Golden Eagles on 11-of-19 shooting from the field. It bested her previous career-high of 18 points set against Nicholls State last season. Shaw also pulled down nine rebounds, collected four steals and handed out four assists in 37 minutes.
The 27 points was the most by a ULM player this season and the most since Larrie Williams scored 28 at Southern Miss on Dec. 10, 2011. Shaw leads the team with an average of 11.1 points per game while shooting 40.9 percent (38-of-93) from the field this season.
The Warhawks are back in action Tuesday at 7 p.m. at 12th-ranked Texas. The game can be seen on the Longhorn Network.
