Harris, Davis Take Home AAC Weekly Awards


Houston Sophomore Guard Jasmyne Harris is the AAC Player of the Week with Temple’s Mia Davis earning Freshman honors.

Prior to the start of the season, Houston Head Coach Ronald Hughey called Harris the “ultimate competitor and an assassin on the basketball court.” She averaged 19 points per game over the last week including a 32-point, 11-rebound performance in a win over Texas State.  Harris’ play has helped her team start the season with a 7-2 record just behind USF and UConn in the AAC standings.

This week marks the second time this season that Davis has been named Freshman of the Week.  She averaged 14 points and 10 rebounds in Temple victories over Saint Joseph and Harvard.
