The honor marks the second consecutive week, and the fourth time this year, that the Miami native has been recognized by the conference as the league's player of the week. The fourth player of the week honors ties an SEC record as Fowles joins Vanderbilt's Wendy Scholtens as the only players in league history to be named conference player of the week four times in the same season. Scholtens did it in 1990.
Fowles shares this week's award with Georgia's Tasha Humphrey, who had back-to-back double-doubles in wins over Kentucky and Alabama.
Last week in wins over Baylor, Arkansas and Ole Miss, Fowles averaged 19.7 points and 12.7 rebounds as the Lady Tigers won all three games by an average of 26 points.
Fowles opened the week with 17 points and 14 rebounds in LSU's 88-57 win over then-No. 9 ranked Baylor. She followed that with 21 points and 11 rebounds in a 93-59 road win over Arkansas and then wrapped up her week with 21 points and 13 rebounds against Ole Miss.
For the week, Fowles connected on 21 of 37 shots from the field and 17 of 25 from the free throw line. She also blocked five shots during the three-game span.
For the year, Fowles is averaging 17.0 points per game and she leads the league in rebounds with an 11.5 average and she's second in the conference in field goal percentage at 64.3 percent.
