Eastern Michigan's Tavelyn James named MAC West Player of the Week

By Staff

The Eastern Michigan women's basketball team played just one game last week, but Tavelyn James made the most of the limited opportunity.

The senior guard was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week after scoring 40 points in an 83-47 win against Kent State on Saturday. James went 10-of-20 from 3-point range, setting a school record and tying a conference mark for most 3-pointers in a game.

It's the seventh time James has won the award in her career.

The 40-point total was two shy of her own single-game school record and pushed her into third place on the MAC's all-time scoring list.

The Eagles (17-7, 9-2) travel to Western Michigan (6-18, 3-8) on Wednesday.
