Karly Gore Earns Player of the Week Honor


RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. – SWOSU Women’s Basketball sophomore guard Karly Gore was named the Great American Conference’s Player of the Week on Tuesday after a stellar weekend playing in the GAC/MIAA Crossover.

Gore (Taloga, Okla.) shot 12-of-20 (60%) overall from the field in SWOSU’s two victories last week and 5-for-7 from the three-point line. Gore tallied 19 points and eight rebounds against Washburn on Friday and followed her performance up with 12 points and four rebounds against Pitt State.

The Lady Bulldogs won on back-to-back days against MIAA opponents last week to move to 3-2 on the season. SWOSU takes a rest this week and will return to the floor next Wednesday against Cameron in Lawton.
