Carnethia Brown, a 5-6 sophomore point guard from Louisville, Kentucky, was named the NJCAA Region 16 Player of the Week for January 22nd-28th. Brown has scored in double figures in four of her last five games, raising her scoring average to 11.5 points per game in the process.

Last Wednesday, Brown scored 18 points as she went seven of 13 from the field and connected on four of eight three point shots in a 71-41 win at Jefferson College. She also had four assists and two steals against the Lady Vikings.

Brown followed up that performance with a season high 23 points at Three Rivers Community College on Saturday, including 18 points in the first half. She also registered four steals and three assists, while shooting eight of 18 from the field and knocking down four of her eight three point attempts in the 76-63 victory.

For the week, Brown averaged 20.5 points and shot 15 of 31 from the floor in 25 minutes per game as the 6th ranked Lady Greyhounds improved to 22-0 on the season.






Game time at 7:00 pm

The Moberly Area Community College Greyhound Men’s Basketball Team will host St. Louis Prep on Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm at the Fitzsimmons-John Arena. St. Louis Prep replaces Link Year Prep on the schedule as they had to cancel. The Greyhounds last played Saturday night on the road as they defeated Three Rivers 103-74 and will resume Region 16 competition Saturday, Feb. 3 as they travel to Park Hills, Mo. to play Mineral Area College at 7 pm.

‘I’m very pleased with the progress this team has made but not satisfied if that makes any sense,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “We have certainly improved in all areas even with player personnel changes and adjustments. Now the next step is how close to a 40 minute team we can become in term of the two “E’s” we talk about, effort and execution. We have to eliminate the 6-8 bad possessions defensively we have each half; fully realize good teams are still going to score some but let’s not make it from our defensive mistakes. Offensively must keep playing with what we call pace, up tempo and moving the ball.”

Moberly is currently 20-3 on the season, 4-0 in Region 16 play, ranked 16th in the NJCAA poll and on a five game winning streak.
