After popping for a school record 47 points in Sunday's loss to Wake Forest and 21 against Fairleigh-Dickinson on 51.1 percent shooting, senior guard Jerica Coley was named Conference USA Player of the Week.
Coley's 28.5 points per game puts her No. 2 nationally. She's only 38 points from the school career record of 2,515 set by Albena Branzova from 1991-95. Branzova was a remarkable player, 6-4 with range from around the hoop to beyond the three-point line and the ability to pass dazzlingly from the post.
But Branzova also played with a surrounding cast, led by All-America point guard Andrea Nagy, that Coley's never had the luxury of having. Coley accounts for 41.2 percent of FIU's scoring this year.
