Auburn's Blanche Alverson Named SEC Player Of The Week

BIRMINGHAM – For the first time in her career, Auburn sophomore Blanche Alverson was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. Alverson earned the award after leading the Tigers to a 2-0 record last week, averaging 18.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.5 steals per game.

A native of Andalusia, Ala., Alverson is the first Auburn player to earn the SEC's weekly honor since KeKe Carrier took the award on Jan. 11, 2010.

Alverson's big week started with a career-high 27 points, including a career-high five 3-pointers, in Thursday's 85-73 win over Ole Miss. She shot 64.7 percent from the field against the Rebels while her 27 points registered as the fourth-highest scoring total in the SEC this season in conference games.

Against LSU, Alverson struggled to find her shot, shooting just 4-of-12 from the field, but she stepped up and had a big day on the other end of the floor, leading Auburn with two blocked shots and a career-high four steals. She also scored nine points with six rebounds in the Tigers' 65-53 win.

 

Auburn will return to action at 7 p.m., Thursday as the Tigers travel to Starkville, Miss., for a meeting with Mississippi State. Auburn will return home at 2 p.m., Sunday to face fifth-ranked Tennessee in Auburn Arena.
