BRENTWOOD, Tenn. – The Ohio Valley Conference announced today that University of Tennessee at Martin women’s basketball guard Elizabeth Masengil has been named adidas OVC Freshman Player of the Week after her promising showing this past weekend.

It was Masengil who had a breakout performance in the victory over Winthrop in the Robert Morris Thanksgiving Classic. Masengil posted a career-high 17 point performance against the Eagles, dishing out seven assists and recording five rebounds.

A Englewood, Tenn. native, Masengil had another solid performance for the Skyhawks against Northern Kentucky. She posted seven points to go with eight rebounds and three steals against the Norse.

Masengil joins teammate Tiara Caldwell as the second Skyhawk to bring home OVC Freshman of the Week honors this season. This honor is the fourth consecutive week in which a Skyhawk has been placed on the OVC’s weekly awards list.

Masengil and the Skyhawks will return to action tomorrow when they take on Southeastern Conference foe Alabama on Wednesday, Dec. 4. Action from Foster Auditorium is set to get underway at 7 p.m.
