We award the Female Athlete of the Week honor to forward Amber Shepherd. The senior from Hueysville, KY, was the difference in the second half in leading her club to a RSC Conference victory.
In the 77-65 win over Brescia University, Shepherd overcame a slow start to pour in 18 big points in the decisive second half run. On the night, she scored a game-high 21 points, snared 4 rebounds, handed off 3 assists, and grabbed 2 steals. She sank 40% of her field goals (4-10; 4-8 threes), and 88.9% (8-9) from the charity line.
