BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Elfrid Payton from Louisiana-Lafayette and McNeese State's Allison Baggett have been named the LSWA Men's and Women's basketball Players of the Week for the week ending Feb. 16 as determined in voting by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
Both student-athletes are repeat winners. Payton previously picking up the honor on Dec. 16 while Baggett earned it on Jan. 20.
Payton turned in a pair of 20-point scoring efforts in leading the Ragin' Cajuns to a pair of home wins to extend their win streak to a season-best five straight games.
