STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA/MSU Athletics) – A stellar week in the paint leading Mississippi State to another historic milestone has earned Teaira McCowan the season’s final Southeastern Conference Player of the Week honor.


It is the fourth time this season McCowan has claimed the accolade, giving her the school record. McCowan averaged 18.0 points, 19.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocks as Vic Schaefer’s squad defeated Auburn and Kentucky to wrap the regular season a perfect 30-0.

The SEC champion Bulldogs became the first league team since Tennessee in 1997-98 to finish the regular season undefeated and the first to do so since the conference switched to a 16-game league schedule.

McCowan helped send the MSU senior class out with a victory as she scored 16 points and grabbed 18 rebounds in an 82-61 win against Auburn. That outing gave her the MSU season double-doubles record with 21, bettering the previous mark set by Sandra Butler in 1983-84.

The Brenham, Texas, native notched her 22nd double-double and third 20-point, 20-rebound game of the year Sunday as she scored 20 points and grabbed 20 boards to go with five blocks in State’s 85-63 win at Kentucky, its first in Lexington since 2009.

McCowan actually notched her double-double in the first half, collecting 17 points and 13 rebounds on 7-of-14 shooting.

She is having the best season of her career, rating fourth in the SEC in scoring (18.7 ppg) and tops in rebounding (13.5 rpg). She also ranks first on the boards in league games (14.4 rpg) and seventh in scoring (17.7 ppg).

McCowan and the Bulldogs face either Alabama or Kentucky at noon Friday in the quarterfinals of the SEC Tournament in Nashville, Tenn.
