Augustus named SEC Player of the Week

Seimone Augustus, a senior guard for LSU's third-ranked women's basketball team, was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, it was announced by the league office on Monday.

Augustus led the Lady Tigers (16-1, 5-0 SEC) to a pair of conference victories, including hitting the game-winning 15-foot jumper shot with 14 seconds remaining in Sunday's 65-64 win at No. 13 Georgia. 

The Baton Rouge native finished that game with 24 points on 10-12 shooting from the floor and four free throws. Two of her free throws game with 1:21 to aid the come-from-behind victory.

Earlier in the week, Augustus led LSU with 20 points in a home victory over Alabama 

Augustus has reached double figures in scoring in 79 straight games and scored at least 20 points in 58 games during her career.

This is the second time this season Augustus has earned the honor and the fourth time an LSU player has received the award. Sylvia Fowles is also a two-time recipient this season
