STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA/MSU Athletics) – With a pair of double-doubles in two road contests, senior center Teaira McCowan received her second SEC Player of the Week honor of the season on Tuesday. It is the sixth weekly conference accolade of her career, the most among active SEC players.

McCowan also broke the Bulldogs’ career rebounding record with her 12th board at then-No. 10 Texas. Her 1,109 career rebounds pushed her past MSU great LaToya Thomas (2000-2003).

The Brenham, Texas, native averaged 18.0 points and 13.5 rebounds per game while shooting 59.3 percent (16-of-27) from the field. She has now recorded six double-doubles this season and 45 in her career, which ranks fourth nationally among active Division I players.

At Little Rock, McCowan led all scorers with 23 points and collected a game-high 15 rebounds. Ten of her rebounds came on the offensive glass, helping State record 15 second-chance points.

In the Bulldogs’ first ranked matchup of the year, McCowan again led the way in rebounding with a dozen boards. She was one of four MSU players to score in double-figures with 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting as State defeated the Longhorns, 67-49.

McCowan is the NCAA’s active career leader in games played (121) and is third in Division I in career rebounds. She leads the SEC in total blocks, total field goals, field goal percentage and total rebounds this year.

Vic Schaefer’s Bulldogs return to action Thursday in Humphrey Coliseum as they host No. 18 Marquette at 7 p.m. CT with the game airing on SEC Network+.

The Bulldogs will then travel for a three-game stretch including a matchup at No. 3 Oregon on Dec. 18.
