Congratulations to East Carolina freshman center Jean Best who was named Conference USA Women's Basketball Rookie of the Week today. It's the second time the 2008 Beddingfield High School graduate has earned that distinction in the past four weeks.
Against Central Florida last week, Best posted her first career double-double with 19 points and a career-high 13 rebounds and four blocked shots, also a career-best. She leads C-USA in field-goal percentage (.606) and is second in blocks (33), an ECU team high.
For my money, Big Jean should have the inside track on C-USA Rookie of the Year.
