Mississippi College guard Ally Alford earned her third Freshman of the Week award from the Gulf South Conference (GSC) yesterday. The Batesville native scored a team-high 23 points (5-9 3PT) and grabbed seven rebounds in the Lady Choctaws’ 73-51 win over West Georgia.

Alford is currently ranked 13th in the GSC’s scoring charts, scoring 13.7 points per game. The freshman sharpshooter is also fourth in the conference in three-point percentage, shooting at a 40.6 percent clip from behind the arc. She is also averaging 2.5 made three-pointers per game, which is also third in the conference.

Alford and the Lady Choctaws improved their record to 8-5 overall and 3-3 in GSC play. They will travel to the Sunshine State to face West Florida, a team that is currently receiving votes in the national poll. Tip-off from Pensacola is set for tomorrow night at 5:30.
