CORPUS CHRISTI – Jasmine Shaw has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Shaw picks up the award after averaging 21 points in two games during the Emerald Beach Islanders Classic.
After transferring from Marshall, the senior made an immediate impact for the Islanders, helping them to a second-place finish in the tournament.
Shaw was also named to the All-Tournament Team after shooting 48 percent from the field as well as going 10-11 from the free-throw line. The guard also snagged eight rebounds and recorded three steals during the weekend.
She notched a game high in points in both games she played in during the tournament, as she scored 20 against Western Illinois to help the Islanders pick up their first season opening win since the 2009-2010 season. Shaw scored even more in the championship game, dropping 22 points, as the team came up just short in a 58-55 loss against Fairfield.
The women's basketball team will be back in action Thursday at 7 p.m. against Southern Utah at the Dugan Wellness Center, as the Islanders finish up a three game homestand.
