This week’s Kansas college Players of the Week, are Kelly Moten, ESU, and Lance Carter, TC.
Kelly Moten, senior, Emporia State
Emporia State picked up its third straight win while halting an 11-game streak for Pitt State, winning 78-70 at PSU on New Year’s Eve. In the battle of two Top 5 teams, Moten led the way with a game-high 27 points and game-high seven assists. She also picked up five rebounds and grabbed five steals on the day. Her 27 points moved her into seventh place on ESU’s all-time scoring list.
Lance Carter, senior, Tabor
Recording 24 points, eight rebounds and eight assists is a pretty solid stat line for a game. Carter did that on Friday night. And then did it again on Saturday night. The senior picked up identical stat lines (for those three categories, at least) in back-to-back games and led his team to wins over Oklahoma Science and Arts and Hastings (Neb.) to close out 2016 on a five-game winning streak.
