Only 14 games into her collegiate career, guard Quiera Lampkins picked up her first major accolade Monday, earning the title of Mid-American East Player of the Week.
The Gahanna, Ohio native became a focal point of Ohio’s offense during the team’s past two matchups against Miami and Western Michigan. Lampkins averaged 21.5 points, three steals and six and a half boards in those two contests, including a career-high 24-point performance against the RedHawks.
Lampkins has been a contributor on offense since the opener against Xavier. Her 10.4 points per game and 5.4 boards per game put her in the second spot on the team in those categories. Her two steals per game leads the team.
Fellow guard Kiyanna Black earned the same honor during the middle of December.
Lampkins and the Bobcats are back in action against Kent State on Wednesday.
