PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
MEN’S OFFENSIVE
Keith Spellman, Midwestern State University, SO, Guard, Brooklyn, N.Y., Jefferson HS

Spellman poured in 17 points a game to help Midwestern State to a pair Lone Star Conference road wins last week over Incarnate Word and Texas A&M-Kingsville. The sophomore guard from Brooklyn, N.Y. scored 19 points including a pair of 3-pointers while going 7-of-12 from the free throw line as the Mustangs recovered from a 16-point first half deficit to claim a victory Thursday at Incarnate Word. The Wizard fired in 10 of his 12 shots from the charity stripe to score 15 points in 21 minutes as the Mustangs once again overcame a 10-point first-half deficit Saturday at Texas A&M-Kingsville.

MEN’S DEFENSIVE
Dennis Hardwell, Eastern New Mexico University, JR, Forward, Los Angeles, Calif., Carson HS/LA Harbor College

Hardwell’s defensive presence helped the Greyhounds win their first two Lone Star Conference games of the season and limit the opposition to 63.5 points per game, and a .282 shooting percentage from outside the three-point line. The performance allowed ENMU to post 18.5 points per game off turnovers. Hardwell finished the week with 12 defensive boards, five blocked shots and six steals. Against Abilene Christian, he finished with 13 points, seven rebounds, four blocks and three steals. In the LSC opener against Angelo State, he had 13 points, 10 boards, three steals and a block.

WOMEN’S OFFENSIVE
Sadie Dickinson, Abilene Christian University, SO, Forward, Graham, Texas, Graham HS

Dickinson led ACU in scoring this past weekend during which the Wildcats defeated conference opponents West Texas A&M, 81-76, and Eastern New Mexico, 74-56. Dickinson dropped 18 points on the Lady Buffs, who the Wildcats had not defeated since the 2010-11 season, and then scored a career high 25 points on 8 of 13 shooting vs. Eastern. She also pulled down 11 boards vs. the Zias for her second double-double in four games. Dickinson started both of last week’s games and finished with a remarkable 3-point field goal percentage of .529 (9-17). She knocked down 4 of 9 attempts in Canyon and 5 of 8 at home vs. the Zias. Her overall field goal percentage was .600 (15-25). Dickinson’s efforts pushed her into a tie for fourth among the conference scoring leaders with 15.5 points per game, and her .550 field-goal percentage ranks third.

WOMEN’S DEFENSIVE
Ashlyn Green, University of the Incarnate Word, SR, Guard, Irving, Texas, Irving HS

Green sparked the Cardinals to an 82-81 double overtime win against Midwestern State. She came off the bench to score 18 points while grabbing seven rebounds and getting five steals. In the win over Cameron, she only scored three points, but was valuable as the top person on the team’s zone press that forced the Aggies into 32 turnovers. In all, Green helped the Cardinals force 61 turnovers in their two wins.
