CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Coastal Carolina’s Sydnei Moss has been named the Big South Conference Women’s Basketball Choice Hotels Player of the Week, while Cheyenne Parker of High Point was tabbed The Crons Brand Freshman of the Week for games played Jan. 25-31, the League announced today.
Moss, a senior from North Augusta, S.C., averaged 18 points and 13.5 rebounds per game to lead Coastal Carolina to a 1-1 record last week. She got her week started with 18 points on 57 percent from the floor and two from the charity stripe to go along with 12 boards and three assists in against League-leading Radford on Jan. 29. Two days later against Winthrop, the guard stayed hot as she poured in 18 points, corralled 15 caroms, dished out three helpers and came away with six steals in the win over the Lady Eagles. She finished 9-of-10 at the line as well as a 43 percent clip from the floor in the two-game span.
Moss was tabbed as a preseason All-Big South Conference team member this season and was a second team all-conference selection last season. Moss was twice selected as the freshman of the week during the 2007-08 campaign.
