Women's Hoops: Lyrell Barfield Earns Sun Belt PLayer of the Week Honors

Lyrell Barfield

NEW ORLEANS - Six Sun Belt teams are currently riding at least a two game winning streak led by UALR with a 13 game winning streak.
Florida Atlantic is currently riding a two-game win streak thanks in part to the play of Lyrell Barfield who is this week's Sun Belt Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

Barfield had an incredibly productive week scoring career-highs in back to back games in a pair of FAU road Sun Belt victories.

The junior scored 24 points on 7-of-13 shooting in FAU's 94-76 victory over North Texas on Wednesday in Denton.  Barfield also sank a career-high with seven free-throws made and drained three 3-point field goals.

The Midland Junior College transfer topped that performance in Saturday's 70-56 victory over Denver.  Barfield scored 25 points and made a career-high six 3-point field goals to go along with a career-high seven steals to help secure the first ever victory for FAU at Magness Arena against the Pioneers.

Barfield entered play on Saturday 12th in the Sun Belt in scoring with 12.7 points per game and 3rd in the conference in three-pointers made per game (2.2).  Barfield has now scored in double-figures in 11 straight games dating back to FAU's 68-58 loss to South Alabama on Jan. 2, 2010, a game which saw the Miami native recorded her first career double-double (16 points, 10 rebounds).
