Updated:

RELEASE FROM MISSOURI SOUTHERN ATHLETICS:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Junior guard Chelsey Henry was named MIAA Athlete of the Week in a release Monday afternoon.

Henry combined for 49 points at a 16-for-27 clip from the field and a perfect 15-for-15 at the free-throw line in MSSU's two wins over Lindenwood and Lincoln to push its winning streak to eight.

She started the week by shooting 50-percent from the field (8-for-16) for 23 points to lead Missouri Southern's comeback over LWU after falling behind 11-2 in the early moments of the game.

Then against the Blue Tigers, Henry poured in 18 of her 26 points in the first half to give the Lions a 14-point lead at halftime. Southern went on to secure the win by 22 (77-55) to close out the road trip.

After last week's performance, the Neosho product currently stands fourth in the MIAA in scoring (17.9), fifth in free-throw percentage (.896), and seventh in field-goal percentage (.474).

Southern is back in action against the Washburn Ichabods inside Leggett and Platt on Wednesday, Jan. 17 for a 5:30 pm contest.
