USM’s Hailes named C-USA Player O’Week

DALLAS (WDAM) _ University of Southern Mississippi junior point guard Shonte Hailes sure does seem to like playing against Louisiana Tech University.

Hailes, who scored 30 points in a loss to the Lady Techsters on Feb. 9, poured in a career-high 33 points Saturday to lead the Lady Eagles to a 74-70 Conference USA victory.

The effort earned Hailes a nod as C-USA Player O’Week as she became the first Lady Eagle this season to win the weekly honor.

Hailes tied her career high with 11 field goals. She made 11-of-18 shots, including 4-of-8 from 3-point range. The 5-foot-6 Quitman native also chipped in three assists, two rebounds and a steal in the victory.
