Ahlise Hurst is the Mountain West Player of the Week for women’s basketball.
The Lobo freshman guard averaged 25 points for the Lobos last week and shot 53 percent from the floor.
Hurst had her best game when she scored 39 points in an 84-80 victory over Oklahoma.
The 39 point performance is the best ever for a freshman in the Mountain West. It’s also a best for freshmen at UNM.
Hurst followed that performance with 11 points in an 83-58 victory over rival New Mexico State this past Saturday.
The Lobos are 5-1 and will host the UTEP Miners Wednesday at Dreamstyle Arena. The game has a 7 p.m. start time.
