The Texas native recorded a career-high 56 assists against North Carolina State, followed by a pair of 55 assist performances versus Akron and Dartmouth. The freshman ranks third in the league in assists per game with an average of 12.43.
Houston's Justine Farmer was named C-USA's Offensive Player-of-the-Week after averaging five double-doubles and 5.14 kills per game and Tulane's Jenn Miller was named Defensive Player-of-the Week after averaging 5.50 digs per game.
The Pirates will play the eighth match of their 12-game road stretch Tuesday night as they travel to Wilmington to take on the UNCW Seahawks. First serve is set for 7 p.m. inside Hanover Hall.
