    SD Mines WBB: Courtney Earns RMAC Women's Basketball Offensive Player Of The Week

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. --- South Dakota School of Mines sophomore Cooper Courtney was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Offensive Player Of The Week Monday from the league office in Colorado Springs, Colo.

    Courtney, an Industrial Engineering major from Overland Parks, Kan., had a great start to the season this past weekend, scoring 45 points in two wins during the Conference Cross-over Classic in Durango, Colo. 

    The 5-foot-6-inch guard scored nine points in the season opener against Eastern New Mexico on Friday afternoon and then cashed in for 36 markers against Texas-Permian Basin on Saturday. She converted 11-17 from the field (65 percent), and also hit 9-10 from the free throw line as well as added four assists in the victory. 

    “I’m very excited for Cooper to be honored by the RMAC as Player of the Week. It’s a well-deserved honor,” said Hardrocker women’s basketball head coach Ryan Larsen. “Cooper had a tremendous weekend offensively and her teammates did a great job of getting her the ball. Besides scoring, Cooper made plenty of other plays that didn’t show up on the stat sheet.” 

    Courtney is currently second in the RMAC for total points (45) and fourth in three-point goals made (6). 

    “I am proud to represent such a prestigious school while playing alongside my best friends,” Courtney said.  “I am also proud to get to play the game I love every day at such a high level of competition.”
