Junior forward Alena Evans of Las Vegas, Nev. was selected as the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week as well as DU Athlete of the Week for games played from February 15-21, 2015.  The award is her first of the season and the second for the Lady Bleu Devils as her teammate senior Keylantra Taylor was selected as GCAC Women’s Basketball POW on November 25.

Her team went 1-1 on the week as they became the only team in the conference so far to defeat Southern University at New Orleans in exciting fashion at the Battlefield, but suffered a loss to Philander Smith College earlier in the week in Arkansas on Lundi Gras.  In the victory over SUNO, Evans scored 16 points and grabbed eight rebounds while shooting 66 percent from the field.  Evans leads the Lady Bleu Devils in scoring and rebounds with 12.9 points per game and seven boards per game respectively.

For the week Evans averaged 16 points and six rebounds and shot 65 percent from the field.

Her Lady Bleu Devils continue GCAC play as they host Tougaloo College for senior night on Thursday, February 26.  Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
