Weekend Watch: Opposing Players to Watch

Women’s Basketball: Louisiana Tech @ Marshall

Saturday at 1 p.m.

Whitney Frazier, Forward, #2- Frazier is an experienced senior forward who leads the team in scoring this season at 15.2 PPG with a 50 percent shooting clip. She does much of her damage in the paint offensively and creates second-chance opportunities grabbing 2.6 offensive RPG while averaging a total of 6.4 RPG. Defensively, Frazier isn’t much of a shot blocker as she has just two total blocks all season. Frazier’s collegiate career has been decorated as she was named second team All-Conference USA last season and second team All-WAC as a sophomore before LA Tech joined Conference USA. In last year’s matchup with the Herd, Frazier had a career night as she scored her 1,000th point and had a career-high 26 points to go along with 11 rebounds.

Chrisstasia Walter, Guard, #10- Walter, a senior, ranks just fifth on the team in scoring at 7.2 PPG, but she ranks first in the conference and 16th nationally in assists at 6.1 per game. Walter’s skillset goes beyond just her excellent passing and court vision she also has the size as a 5-foot-8 guard and athleticism to make an impact on the glass averaging a team-leading 6.5 RPG. She isn’t much of an outside shooter as she has made nine 3-pointers in 17 games this season and shot just 1-8 against the Herd in last year’s contest.

Swimming and Diving: Western Kentucky @ Marshall

Saturday at 1 p.m.

Michelle Craddock- Craddock enters Saturday’s meet after being named Conference USA Swimmer of the Week on Tuesday. Craddock competes as a free-style swimmer for WKU and notched two individual wins and relay win in the team’s meet last weekend. Craddock won the 500 free and the 100 free in which she set a new pool record at 50.82 seconds. That wasn’t the only record-setting performance by Craddock; she also accomplished a split time of 22.65 seconds as a member of the 200 free relay team that also set a new pool record.
