HOUSTON - University of Houston women's basketball junior forward Yasmeen Thompson was named the Conference USA Co-Player of the Week, the league office announced Monday. Thompson, who shares the honor with UAB's Karisma Chapman, was recognized for the first time in her career.

Thompson averaged 16.0 points and 10.0 rebounds while shooting a remarkable 84 percent (21-of-25) from the field to lead the Cougars to a 2-1 record last week, including double-digit wins over Southeast Missouri and Northwestern State to claim the David Jones Classic title.

The Philadelphia, Pa., native, who is in her first season at Houston after transferring from Paris Junior College, recorded a career performance in Tuesday's narrow loss at McNeese State, posting a career-best 21 points to go with 14 rebounds and two blocks. Thompson, who was 9-of-12 from the field against the Cowgirls, carried the Cougars in the first half, converting five of the team's six field goals over a four-minute span.

Thompson posted nine points and 10 rebounds while going 4-of-5 from the field to help the Cougars to their first victory of the season over Southeast Missouri on Friday, and followed up with an 18-point, 6-rebound performance in Saturday's victory over Northwestern State, where she shot a perfect 8-of-8 from the field.

In the two tournament games over the weekend, Thompson was 12-of-13 (.923) from the field.

Thompson currently leads C-USA this season in rebounding (11.7 rpg) and field-goal percentage (.732) while ranking third in blocks (1.6 bpg), and is currently averaging a double-double with 11.5 points per game.

The Cougars look for their third-straight victory when they play host to UTSA at 7 p.m., Tuesday at Hofheinz Pavilion.
