Adderton earns Player of the Week for second time
For the second time this season, Francis Marion junior forward Kiana Adderton has been selected as the Peach Belt Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week presented by Floor Action. The award is for the week of Jan. 20-26.
Adderton led the resurgent Patriots to three wins and four in a row altogether.
The Myrtle Beach native averaged 22.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.7 blocks, and 1.0 steal per game. She shot 48 percent from the field and 89 percent (16-of-18) from the line.
She tallied career-high totals of 36 points and 16 rebounds to key a fourth-quarter comeback in a 65-60 victory over Flagler College. The 36 points is the most by a PBC player in a single game this season.
She began the week with a 15-point, eight-rebound performance in a road win at Georgia Southwestern State and then scored 17 points with four rebounds and four assists in a 67-52 win over Georgia College.
Adderton is fourth in the PBC in scoring (16.7 ppg), sixth in rebounding (7.4 rpg), seventh in free throw percentage (76.2%), and ninth in both blocked shots and total field goal percentage (48.1%).
