Walker Named SEC-Freshman of the Week

 COLLEGE STATION-Texas A&M freshman Courtney Walker has been selected by the Southeastern Conference as SEC Freshman of the Week following A&M's road wins over LSU and then No. 12 South Carolina.

 Walker was the second leading scorer for the Aggies in each of A&M's games this week. The Edmond, Oklahoma native was 8-for-10 from the floor against LSU for 16 points, a conference best 80% shooting for Walker and the second best in a conference game for an A&M player this year. The freshman swiped three steals against LSU leading to six A&M points, including a Walker fast-break layup with less than three minutes to play to secure the A&M victory.

 Against the Gamecocks Walker led the defensive charge that held South Carolina to a season low 28.1% shooting. Additionally Walker collected a season high five offensive rebounds, leading to four of A&M's 10 second chance points. Her seven rebounds on Sunday tied for the second most in a  game this year and is best in a SEC game. Walker scored all 10 of her points on Sunday in the first half to help the Aggies take a six point lead into the locker room.

 Texas A&M returns to the court Thursday night when the Aggies host Florida at 8:00 p.m. Thursday's game will be elementary school night, parents can go to http://www.12thmanfoundation.com/ticket-center/promo/elementary.aspx to register their children for free tickets to the game.
