Horn honored with award

Coming off an impressive performance in which she averaged more than 20 points per game at the AT&T Hoops Classic last week, UAA's Alysa Horn was named co-Player of the Week in Great Northwest Athletic Conference women's basketball.

Horn, a senior from Kodiak, helped the Seawolves earn three wins in three days to win the Classic. The 6-foot forward scored 25 points against BYU-Hawaii and coupled 21 points with a career-high 16 rebounds against Cal State L.A., in the tournament finale. She also averaged nine rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 2.7 steals per game on her way to being named the tournament's most outstanding player.

This is Horn's fourth career player-of-the-week honor, sharing the honor with Western Washington's Britt Harris.
