On Tuesday afternoon, it was announced that Crowder sophomore guard Michaela Mack had earned Region 16 Division I women’s player of the week for the week of November 13-19.

Mack — a 5-foot-6 point guard from Edmond, Oklahoma (Edmond Santa Fe High) — helped the Lady ‘Riders to a 2-1 mark in three games last week at Bob Sneller Gymnasium. Crowder defeated Murray State 74-61 last Tuesday and Seminole State 73-68 on Saturday, with a 61-60 loss to unbeaten Northern Oklahoma-Enid the only blemish for the Lady ‘Riders.

Mack averaged 13.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, three assists, and three steals during the week, and shot 12 for 29 (41.3 percent) from the field.

She had 15 points, four rebounds, four assists, and three steals in the win against Murray State.

Mack came back Friday with one of her best efforts, a double-double with 11 points and 12 rebounds, plus three assists and two steals.

Mack closed out the week with 14 points, three rebounds, two assists, and four steals against Seminole State.

On the season, after nine games, Mack averaged 9.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.7 assists.

Mack and the Lady ‘Riders returned to action Tuesday against Redlands.
