BOWLING GREEN - Bowling Green State University junior Niki McCoy was named the MAC East women's player of the week Monday.
McCoy, a Sylvania native and Northview graduate, averaged 18 points and four rebounds in the Falcons' two road wins last week and was named the most valuable player of the Dayton Flyer Classic. She scored 20 points and grabbed four boards in BGSU's 77-68 victory over Dayton in that tournament's championship game.
McCoy is second on the Falcons with 14.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. She leads the team in free throws made (61) and attempted (76), as well as in field-goal percentage (49.2 percent).
BGSU is 11-2 and will open MAC play Wednesday night against Kent State.
