Huff Named GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTIBrandi Huff has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Huff is given the award after nearly averaging a double-double on the week with 18 points and 16 rebounds in two games.

She helped the team to a win against UT-Pan American on Sunday with 12 points to go along with five rebounds. In an overtime loss to UTSA she recorded the second double-figure rebounding performance of her career with a team-high 11 rebounds against the Roadrunners. She also added six points, two blocks and two steals on the night.

After scoring just 12 points in her first four games, Huff found into a rhythm as of late, averaging 10.5 points per game to go along with 6.75 rebounds over the last four matchups.

The women's basketball team will be off for finals this week, but will have a quick two-game road trip to Texas Southern on Dec. 19 and UT-Arlington on Dec. 21 before the holidays.
