NASHVILLE, Tenn. - For the second week in-a-row and third time in her career, senior guard Haris Price was named the Tennessee Sportswriters Association Player of the Week announced by the organization Thursday afternoon.
It is the fifth time this year that C-N has won the weekly honor, three more than any other school. Belmont and Tennessee each have a pair sitting in second among the programs in the Volunteer State.
In blowout wins over Mars Hill and Coker last week, the Gatlinburg, Tenn. native averaged 25.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 3.5 steals. She went 18-for-28 from the field, 8-for-13 from long range and converting all seven foul shots.
The week began with the All-American tallying 28 points in a 109-49 victory over Mars Hill Wednesday night as she went 10-for-15 from the field and going 6-for-8 from three-point range. She added six assists, five rebounds and a pair of steals.
Price continued her string of scoring outbursts with a game-high 23 points making eight of 13 field-goal tries adding eight rebounds, five steals and three assists in 23 minutes in a 98-65 win over Coker. The senior moved up to ninth passing Stacie Dunn (2000-04) bringing her career tally to 1,263.
Elsewhere on the school's ledger, she is seventh in three-pointers made with 125, five shy of moving up, and 10th in assists with 318, three shy of ninth.
During the 2019 calendar year, Price is averaging 25 points per game while shooting 60 percent from the field and 59 percent from deep, 29-for-49. Over 10 games, she has five with at least 25 including a 39- and 44-point effort.
The Lady Eagles lace it back up Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. with a road trip to Catawba looking for a third consecutive win at Goodman Gym.
