McMurry War Hawks Reyna Earns ASC West Player of the Week
2018 Feb 13
After a banner week during which she led the McMurry University women's basketball team to a pair of American Southwest Conference wins, sophomore forward Skyler Reyna (San Antonio, Texas/Brackenridge H.S.) has been selected as the ASC West Division "Player of the Week," it was announced. Reyna averaged a sterling double-double of 16.5 points and 17.5 rebounds per game in the War Hawks' victories.
It marks the second time this season that Reyna has won the ASC honor. She was also voted the ASC West weekly accolade on January 15.
Reyna had a pair of double-doubles in the games last week - giving her 13 on the year - as she led McM to the wins, which assured the War Hawks of the program's first winning record since the 2011-12 season. In the team's last-second win over Howard Payne last Thursday, Reyna had 13 points and 16 rebounds.
In the home finale versus Sul Ross State on Saturday, Reyna nearly had a 20-20 game, registering 20 points and 19 rebounds, despite not playing the bulk of the fourth quarter with McM well ahead. It was also the 5th time Reyna had 20+ points in a game in 2017-18 and the 20th time she tallied in double-digit scoring this year.
On the year, Reyna is also averaging double figures in both scoring and rebounds to lead the War Hawks. Reyna scores an average of 15.7 points per game, while grabbing 10.3 boards per contest. She also leads the squad in shooting percentage (.475) and ranks second in total steals (47).
