MTSU’s Ty Petty picks up another honor as Player of the Week


ASN-Ty-Petty-POWIt was a privilege to have the first three rounds of the Conference USA women’s basketball tournament on ASN.

Coach Rick Insell and his Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders were nothing short of phenomenal as they won the tournament championship and earned the conference’s automatic NCAA Tournament bid.

Fittingly, MTSU’s Ty Petty, the tournament MVP honoree, is the ASN Women’s Player of the Week. It must be so fun to play with her — she dished out 13 assists in the quarterfinal matchup against Rice and averaged 7.6 assists over three tournament games.

She also added her highest scoring performance of the tournament with 19 points in the championship game and set a school single-season assist record (188).
