Chattanooga’s Ashlen Dewart was selected as the Southern Conference women’s basketball Player of the Week the league office announced Tuesday, marking the second time she's received the honor this season.
Dewart led the Lady Mocs to the Southern Conference regular season crown with back-to-back home wins, and averaged 18 points and nine rebounds in the two-game span.
Against Western Carolina, Dewart played just 19 minutes in the 81-39 victory, scoring 12 points on 6 of 9 shooting, while bringing down a team-leading nine rebounds—five on offense. Two days later against Davidson, the 6-4 junior went 11 of 13 from the floor, tallying 24 points with nine boards, two assists and four steals in 32 minutes of action.
Dewart is third in the league in scoring (15.9 ppg) and ninth in rebounding (6.9 rpg). She leads with SoCon in field goal percentage (.534 percent) and offensive rebounds (2.8 orpg), and has 10 games with at least 20 points this season to go with six double-doubles.
Other top performers last week included Appalachian State’s Anna Freeman, College of Charleston’s Afreyea Tolbert, Davidson’s Barbara Sitton, Elon’s Kelsey Evans, Furman’s Brittany Hodges, Georgia Southern’s Meredyth Frye, and Samford’s Hannah Dawson.
