BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Shawn Long from Louisiana-Lafayette and Northwestern State’s Trudy Armstead have been named the Louisiana Sports Writers Association Men’s and Women’s basketball Players of the Week.

Long earns the honor for the second time this season after averaging 25.5 points and 10.5 rebounds to lead the Ragin’ Cajuns to a pair of road victories by a total of four points. Long also received the award on Dec. 3, the first time it was handed out this year.

Armstead picks up her second weekly LSWA honor after she guided the Demons to wins over McNeese State and Nicholls State last week, averaging 21.0 points per game, including a 30-point outburst against McNeese State. Armstead previously won the award on Dec. 30.
