For the second time this season, Seward County Community College sophomore Tegan Cunningham has been named the NJCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Player of the Week. Cunningham, a 6-foot-1 guard from Doncaster, VC, Australia, led the Lady Saints to an upset victory over then-No. 3 Barton County Community College Saturday night. Cunningham scored the final six points of the game for Seward County, including two free throws with 0.7 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Lady Saints the 68-67 victory over the Lady Cougars at the Green House. It is the fourth time in Cunningham’s two-year career at SCCC that she has received National Player of the Week recognition. Earlier this season, Cunningham was named the NJCAA Co-Player of the Week (Nov. 28).

In Seward County’s only game last week, Cunningham scored 27 points, 23 of which came in the second half. She also tallied seven rebounds, three assists and three steals. She shot 12-of-23 from the field, including 10-of-17 in the second half.

Cunningham, a returning First Team WBCA and NJCAA All-American, is climbing the charts in the all-time SCCC record books ranking in several top 10 categories. She currently ranks fifth in career points scored (1,054), third in career field goals made (437), fifth in career rebounds (514), and she is also currently first all-time in career scoring average (19.2 ppg.).

Including Cunningham’s four NJCAA Player of the Week selections, the Seward County women’s basketball program has had seven national player of the week selections.
