Dee Givens earns 1st C-USA Player of the Week nod

Redshirt senior forward Dee Givens was named Conference USA Player of the Week after her 41-point breakout performance for the WKU women’s basketball team in its 91-86 overtime win at Ball State on Saturday, the league announced Monday.

The C-USA Player of the Week nod is the first of Givens' career, but it's the second for the Lady Toppers after junior forward Raneem Elgedawy was named C-USA Player of the Week on Dec. 2.

Givens scored a total of 59 points across WKU's two games last week and averaged seven rebounds per game.
