Taylor Roberts Named adidas OVC Freshman of the Week

NASHVILLE ---Tennessee State University women’s basketball player Taylor Roberts was named the adidas® OVC Freshman of the Week on Tuesday.

Roberts, a native of Oklahoma City, Okla., posted double-digits for the second consecutive game behind an 18-point, nine-rebound performance versus Alabama A&M.

She scored 14 of her points in the second half to help TSU erase a 23-point deficit and went a perfect 4-of-4 from the free-throw line.

After two games, the 5-11 Guard/Forward is the team’s second leading scorer (15.5 ppg) and rebounder (7.0) . She is also ranked in the Top 10 in four OVC categories: scoring (5th), field goal percentage (7th), free-throw percentage (1st), and steals (3rd).

This marks the second OVC weekly award for TSU this season, as Tia Wooten earned Co-Player of the Week honors last Tuesday.
