Auburn guard Tyrese Tanner has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week for her performance at last weekend’s Sheraton Raleigh Wolfpack Invitational.
The Auburn junior put up 15 points against Maine in the season opener and scored 26 points against North Carolina State in the Championship Game of the Wolfpack Invitational. Her 26 points are the most for an Auburn player since Blanche Alverson scored 27 on Jan. 13, 2011.
New Auburn Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy said,”I thought Tyrese was really good … there are so many aspects to the game that she can bring. Not just scoring, she is a great rebounder, a good defender. She can be an all-around player every single game.”
Tyrese leads Auburn both in scoring (20.5 ppg) and in rebounds (8.5 ppg). She was also named to the All- Tournament team along with her teammate Hasina Muhammad.
Congratulations Tyrese and War Eagle!
