Seleena Neal - Basketball
Neal was a workhorse on both ends of the court last week and put up numbers worthy of AMC Player of the Week honors. With three games in six days against the likes of Principia, No. 6-ranked Freed-Hardeman (Tenn.) and Missouri Baptist, Neal averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.3 steals per game. On Tuesday versus Principia, Neal posted 26 points, 11 rebounds, six steals and three blocks. She followed that performance with 31 points, 11 rebounds and five steals against No. 6 Freed Hardeman. Then on Saturday, the sophomore guard was just one rebound shy of recording her third consecutive double-double.
She moved into the conference lead for points per game and ranks second in the AMC in steals per game. Nationally, Neal ranks in or near the top 10 in steals per game (5th) and points per game (11th).
