Feb. 18, 2013

HOUSTON - University of Houston women's basketball forward Marche' Amerson was named the Conference USA Freshman of the Week, the league office announced Monday. Amerson claimed her second-career weekly honor and the third award for Houston in the last four weeks.

Amerson averaged 11.5 points while shooting 59 percent (10-of-17) from the field and connecting on 3-of-6 shots from beyond the arc as Houston split a pair of C-USA contests against Tulsa and Tulane.

In Houston's narrow 59-55 loss to Tulsa on Thursday, Amerson posted eight points and tied a career high with two treys on four attempts.

The Bryan, Texas, native played a pivotal role in Houston's thrilling double overtime victory at Tulane on Sunday, hitting a jumper to cut the once 16-point deficit down to seven before burying a 3-pointer to give the Cougars a five-point lead with 7:13 remaining in the game. Amerson added a layup in the second overtime to push Houston out to a two-point lead with 3:09 remaining as the Cougars were able to close it out in that period.

Amerson was 7-of-10 from the field against the Green Wave while adding another bucket from distance, marking her highest percentage (.700) from the field this season.

Amerson has started in all 24 games for the Cougars and ranks second on the squad with 8.5 points per game and nine double-digit scoring performances. Amerson is averaging nearly 10 points per game (9.7 ppg) in league play while shooting 37 percent from the field, which ranks fourth on the team in C-USA action.

UP NEXT
The Cougars remain on the road to take on UTEP (18-6, 6-5) at 8 p.m., CT on Thursday in El Paso before returning home to host league leader SMU (19-5, 10-1) at 2 p.m., on Sunday at Hofheinz Pavilion.
