The St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference has released the first Player of the Week honors for the 2017-18 basketball season. Darby Massner picked up the first award of the season with her play in the team?s first two games of the year.
Massner led the Tiger offense in the team?s games against Coe College and Graceland University. She averaged 23.5 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. In Iowa Wesleyan?s first game against Coe, Massner recorded a double-double to start the season. She finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds. She followed that performance with a 24-point, eight-rebound game against Graceland University. On the week, she shot 53.3 percent from the field and shot 8-15 from behind the three-point line.
Massner and the IW women will head to Wartburg College tonight (Tuesday) for a 6 p.m. contest.
The Tigers are still searching for their first win of the season and will have a tough matchup in today?s game.
