FELDHAUS AND BOGGS EARN ADIDAS OVC WEEKLY HONORS
December 6, 2016
BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – A pair of University of Tennessee at Martin women’s basketball players earned adidas Ohio Valley Conference weekly honors on Tuesday as Ashton Feldhaus was named Newcomer of the Week while Breanna Boggs was tabbed the league’s Freshman of the Week.
Feldhaus notched her second straight week as OVC Newcomer of the Week after a pair of strong performances last week. She began her week by tying her career-high once again by tallying her third straight game with 14 points. She filled out the stat sheet against Southern Illinois by tallying a career-high nine assists while tallying four rebounds and two steals in the victory. Against Chattanooga later in the week, she tallied five points and eight rebounds in the contest.
A native of Richmond, Ky., Feldhaus has scored in double figures six times on the year – including a five-game streak which spanned much of the month of November. Feldhaus ranks second on the team by averaging 11.1 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Boggs earned her first Freshman of the Week honor of her young career after a standout performance against Southern Illinois. Boggs flirted with a double-double, tallying a career-high 17 points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes of play. She made her first eight consecutive shots of the contest while tallying 10 points in the third quarter alone. She concluded the week with four points, two rebounds and two assists against Chattanooga in 16 minutes.
A native of Erin, Tenn., Boggs has seen her production increase throughout the season. She has scored eight points or more in three contests while tallying three games with at least six rebounds. Boggs averages 5.4 points and 3.9 rebounds in 16.8 minutes per game.
The announcement marks the first time that two or more Skyhawks have garnered respective OVC honors in the same week since the duo of Heather Butler (Player of the Week) and Ashia Jones (Freshman of the Week) did so on March 3, 2014.
UT Martin will return to action on Saturday, Dec. 10 with a trip to Oral Roberts. Tipoff from the Mabee Center is scheduled for 12:30 p.m.
