After breaking the most prolific scoring record in Seward County Community College womenís basketball history, Tegan Cunningham has been named the NJCAA Division I Womenís Basketball Co-Player of the Week for the fifth time during her two-year career. Cunningham, a sophomore NJCAA & WBCA All-American, broke the SCCC all-time career scoring mark last week with 14 points in a victory against Garden City Community College. For the week, Cunningham averaged 15.5 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and 2.5 assists per game. She shared the honor with La Shonda Martin, a 5-foot-7 guard from Black Hawk-East College, who averaged 27 points, four rebounds and 2.5 steals per game last week. It is the third time this season Cunningham has been honored as the NJCAA Player of the Week.

Cunningham helped lead the Lady Saints to an upset victory over then-No. 19 Cloud County last Wednesday night by scoring 17 points with nine rebounds, a season-high five steals and four assists. Cunninghamís 17 points tied her with former two-time First Team All-American Kim Ortega (1,267 points, 2000-2002) for second-place all-time in Lady Saintsí history for career scoring.

She finished the week as the all-time career leading scorer after posting 14 points and 11 rebounds in a victory over Garden City to pass former First Team All-American Jamie Talbert (1,274 points, 1998-2000). Cunninghamís 1,281 career points came in five fewer games than Talbert had to record the previous record. In addition, Cunningham currently holds the all-time Seward County record for career scoring average (19.5 ppg.).

Also this season, Cunningham has broken the Seward County career record for field goals (539), and she is currently third in career rebounds (612), eighth in career steals (131) and 10th in career free throws (186).

Cunningham, the nationís fourth leading scorer (21.3 ppg.), has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her collegiate career at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Okla.
