Lady Raider Laeshja Grant Earns Big 12 Player of the Week
Texas Tech junior transfer from Trinity Valley CC Leashja Grant has been pegged as the Big 12 Women's Basketball Player of the Week. This is Grant's first week as a Red Raider and her first Big 12 honor.
Grant dropped a double-double, with 26 points and 15 rebounds, to go along with 3 blocks. Through the opening weekend, Grant leads the Big 12 in both points and rebounds.
Sure, this is a small sample size, but if Grant can keep up production even close to the output of her first weekend she will be a great transfer for the Lady Raiders.
This is Texas Tech’s first Big 12 weekly award since Feb. 2, 2015, when Amber Battle was named Big 12 Player of the Week as well. This is Tech’s second such award since 2012.
Grant and the Lady Raiders return to action on Saturday, Nov. 21, against Southeastern Louisiana. Tipoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the United Supermarkets Arena.
