ABILENE - ACU sophomore guard Mack Lankford has been named the Lone Star Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season.
The LSC office announced the award Monday afternoon as the Wildcats are preparing for their final two games of the regular season, games which will determine their post-season fate.
Lankford kept the Wildcats alive in the race for the LSC Championship Tournament, leading the Wildcats to a pair of wins last week over Incarnate Word and Texas A&M-Kingsville.
In a 76-59 road win over UIW last Wednesday, Lankford scored 25 points to lead the Wildcats to the victory. She was 4 for 6 from 3-point range in the win and dished out four assists and had three steals.
In Sunday afternoon's 79-64 home win over Kingsville, Lankford might have played one of the best games of her ACU career, scoring a career-high 38 points while pulling down eight rebounds, dishing out five assists, coming up with one blocked shot and picking up five steals.
She finished the week as a 50-percent shooter from 3-point range (8 of 16) and shot 47.6 percent from the field overall ( 20 of 42).
Earlier this season, Lankford was named the LSC Offensive Player of the Week for the week of Nov. 23.
