Spriggs is A-10 women's player of week

Charlotte 49ers women's basketball player Ashley Spriggs was named the Atlantic 10 Conference player of the week following her performance over the weekend in the Hoops for the Cure Tournament in Dallas, Tex.

Spriggs, a junior forward, was named most valuable player of the tournament, hitting the game-winning shot as time expired to give the 49ers a 76-74 win over host Southern Methodist in the championship game. For the week, she averaged 16.7 points and seven rebounds in three 49ers games, including a home loss to Wake Forest last Wednesday.
