MORROW — A pair of Clayton State student-athletes have earned the distinction of being selected as the Drury Inn & Suites Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of January 13-19 as announced by the institution on Sunday.
Taneria Wilson — Women’s BasketballSenior guard Taneria Wilson (Fort Pierce, Fla.) had a week for the ages as she averaged 27.0 points, 8.0 steals, 4.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting .541 (20-of-37) from the field and 6-of-14 (.429) beyond the arc.
She opened the week at Georgia Southwestern (1/15) by scoring 20 points to go with six steals, four rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes. That performance led the Lakers to a 73-62 victory.
Wilson would perform at a near record level in the week’s finale at Francis Marion (1/18). In 44 minutes she would drop 34 points on 12-of-19 shooting (4-of-7 from three-point range) and come away with a program record tying 10 steals to go with four assists and five rebounds.
