University of Akron shooting guard Hanna Luburgh has been selected as the Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week.
This is Luburgh's fourth MAC Player of the Week honor of her career, and the second consecutive week the award has gone to an Akron player.
Luburgh was nearly unstoppable offensively last week for the Zips, reaching a career milestone in the process. In Akron's three games, she averaged 28.7 points per contest, including two 30-point games, and shot 50.0 percent from the field en route to surpassing 1,000 points for her career
University of Akron forward Rachel Tecca has been named the Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week.
This is the first time this season and the seventh time in her career Tecca has earned the conference's weekly award.
As the reigning MAC Player of the Year, Tecca set the bar high once again in the first game of her senior season last week. In Akron's 98-69 win over Florida Atlantic, Tecca shot 63.2 percent from the field (12-of-19), setting a new career-high with 36 points in just 27 minutes of action.
