KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Teonika Webb of Virginia Intermont has been named the NAIA National Division II Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the national office announced Tuesday. Webb was selected based on her performances from Jan. 16 – 22 and was chosen out of a pool of conference/independent/unaffiliated groupings.

The sharpshooting Webb piled up 60 combined points as she powered her team to wins over No. 19 Bluefield (Va.), 78-67, on Jan. 18 and over No. 22 Montreat (N.C.), 86-73, on Jan. 21. She stuffed the stat sheet in the win over Bluefield, posting 23 points, eight rebounds, three assists and four steals. Three days later, she poured in a career high 37 points while also notching career single-game bests with 11 made field goals, six 3-pointers and nine free-throw makes. For the week, Webb shot 20 of 43 from the field (.465), 9 of 18 from beyond the arc and 11 of 16 (.688) at the free-throw line.

The 5-foot-9 senior guard from Dublin, Va., rates as one of the top shooters in the nation. Her 3-point field goal percentage of 39.8 ranks 18th nationally and her scoring average of 17.8 points per game is the 22nd best figure in the NAIA.
