Richards the RMAC Offensive Player of the Week

Scoring 37 points against the top-team in the conference is a good way to get noticed.
Fort Lewis College senior Erika Richards was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week on Monday.
The 5-9 guard from Mesa, Ariz., scored a career-high 37 points Saturday night when the Skyhawks upset the No. 2 ranked team in the country, Colorado Mesa. She converted on 11-of-17 shots from the field and 5-of-8 3-point attempts while making 10-of-13 free throws.
Richards scored another 20 points Friday night against Western State. She averaged 28.5 points in the two games with 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in the two victories. She shot 56.7 percent from the field and 8-of-13 from 3-point distance.
It was the first offensive player of the week award this season for Richards, who joins fellow seniors Christie Groh and Ashley Kuchar as the only Skyhawks to earn the honor this season.
