This week’s Kansas college Players of the Week are Tyra Jones, ESU, and Cameron Hunt, SC.
Tyra Jones, senior, Emporia State
Jones played big in helping the Hornets to a 2-0 week, knocking off a nationally ranked opponent as well. The sofas scored 18.5 points per game and brought down 8.5 rebounds per game on the week. She put up a double-double with 22 points and 11 boards in ESU’s win at No. 23 Pitt State.
Cameron Hunt, senior, Southwestern
Hunt had at least 30 points in all three games the Moundbuilders played last week – all three wins. In one week, he became the school’s all-time leading scorer, put up 40 points in a game in which he went 6-for-6 from outside the arc, and hit the buzzer-beating shot in overtime to defeat a rival on the road. That’s a pretty good week.
