Sophie Cunningham earns SEC Freshman of the Week honors
COLUMBIA - Missouri freshman guard Sophie Cunningham earned her fourth Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week award, the league announced Tuesday.
Cunningham averaged 14 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in two games in a Missouri victory over then-No. 7 Mississippi State and a loss to Arkansas last week. She leads the Tigers in scoring at 14.2 points per game, which is good for 11th overall in the SEC and leads all SEC freshman.
The Missouri women's basketball team (15-3, 2-3 SEC) moved up one spot in the Associated Press Top 25 this week to No. 23 and will head to College Station, Texas to play No. 13 Texas A&M Thursday night.
