Tennessee State guard Erica Haynes-Overton was named Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week.
Although the Tigers came up empty in their games last week, losing a 67-65 nail biter at home to Stetson and a decisive 100-72 beatdown at Southern Illinois, Haynes-Overton averaged 17.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals in the two matchups. The 22 points she put in against Stetson was her fourth time topping the 20-point barrier on the season.
On the season the grad transfer from Kansas is averaging 14.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.4 steals.
Haynes-Overton and her teammates will look to get back to winning ways Thursday, when they head to Texas to face the Bears of Baylor.
