MACON, Ga. – Coming off a career-high 27-point effort, Lipscomb redshirt-freshman guard Chandler Cooper has been named Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week by both the league and College Sports Madness.
The Clarksville, Tenn. native had a career night from the floor in an 86-76 win over Jacksonville State on Tuesday. She was 9-of-12 shooting, including 7-of-9 from beyond the arc. Her 27 points were the most by a Lady Bison since 2010.
On the night Cooper also grabbed four rebounds, dished out four assists and collected two steals.
In the second half against the Gamecocks, Cooper was perfect from the field going 5-of-5.
Playing in only five games this season Cooper has hit 17 3-point shots and is averaging a team best 16.2 points per game.
