Thornton named C-USA player of the week

KTSM
UTEP

POSTED: Monday, January 13, 2014 - 4:59pm

UPDATED: Monday, January 13, 2014 - 9:15pm

Senior Kayla Thornton has been named the Conference USA Women's Basketball Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. Thornton averaged 22.5 points and 13.5 rebounds to help get the Miners (13-2, 2-0 C-USA) off to a 2-0 start in league play. It marks her second C-USA Player of the week honor as Thornton also earned the award Nov. 18.

She scored more than 20 points in both of the contests, including becoming the first Miner in program history with a 20/20 game to help lead the Orange and Blue to the 97-66 win vs. Tulsa on Jan. 11. Thornton hit 56.0 percent (14-of-25) of her shots from the floor while going a combined 13-of-16 at the free-throw line. Perhaps more impressive is the fact that she logged a total of 54 minutes (26 at UAB & 28 vs. Tulsa).

In the game against TU, Thornton poured in 22 points while grabbing a school-record-tying 20 rebounds (seven offensive). She also blocked two shots and had a pair of steals.

Thornton opened the week with a 23-point, seven-rebound effort in the 85-76 victory at UAB. The senior made 6-of-9 from the floor, including 2-of-2 from three-point range, while also going 9-of-12 at the charity stripe.

The Miners will return to action when they venture to the “Volunteer State” to battle Middle Tennessee at 6 p.m. MST Wednesday. The Blue Raiders were the preseason pick to win C-USA while UTEP was voted second. The game will air on 1150 AM in El Paso.
