Herrin Selected as Lone Star Conference South Defensive Player of the Week
Herrin’s selection marks the first time this season a Zia basketball player has earned weekly LSC honors. The last ENMU women’s basketball player selected was Cat Clay (Sr., F, Deming, N.M./Deming HS), earning offensive honors on December 14, 2010.
Herrin had four steals, a block and six rebounds in last week’s victory at Texas Woman’s to go along with an 18-point performance. She followed with an 18-point, three-block, six-rebound performance against Texas A&M-Commerce. Her play helped limit the opposition to 54 points per game and 36.9 percent from the field on the two-game road trip.
The Eastern New Mexico University women’s basketball team will return to action on Saturday, when they host seventh-ranked Northeastern State University in another LSC crossover game. Tipoff is scheduled for s p.m. MST.
