NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Sophomore point guard Issy Morgan captured the first Atlantic 10 Player of the Week honor of her career on Monday afternoon after leading Davidson to a 2-0 week in league action.

The Wildcats’ floor general averaged 19.0 points with five rebounds and seven assists across a two-game stretch last week, initially dropping 18 in a road win at VCU before putting up a career-high 20 points in a barn burner against Duquesne. Overall, Morgan shot 60 percent from the floor and 54.5 percent from beyond the arc, including a 4-of-8 effort from deep against Duquesne on Sunday.

Monday’s honor marks the fourth A-10 weekly nod for Morgan, as she captured three Rookie of the Week honors en route to an All-Rookie campaign during the 2021-22 season.

Morgan and the ‘Cats will return to the floor on Wednesday night for a 7 p.m. tip off against Saint Louis.
