Metro: Munn named top MVC Scholar-Athlete

TERRE HAUTE — Senior guard Anna Munn has been named this week’s Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week.

Munn was honored for her performances in the Sycamores’ wins over Evansville and Southern Illinois in women’s basketball.

ISU’s leading scorer showed her versatility over the weekend as she helped her team improve to 5-0 in Valley play with the pair of road wins. Against Evansville, the Indianapolis native dropped a game-high 20 points, including 14 in the first half, and grabbed five rebounds as ISU posted its largest win of the season, 67-46.

Munn, a two-time MVC Scholar-Athlete selection this season, went 7 for 14 from the field, 4 for 4 from 3-point range and 2 for 2 from the free-throw line against the Purple Aces. In addition, she tied for a team-high four assists and recorded two steals.

On Sunday vs. Southern Illinois, Munn picked up a team-high nine rebounds while also chipping in with seven points and four assists in 27 minutes of action. For the week, the senior guard went .429 from the field and 1.000 percent from the line. She also recorded 14 total rebounds and eight assists.

Munn continues to lead ISU for the season, averaging 13.9 points per game. She owns a 3.80 grade-point average while majoring in physical education and exercise science.

Munn and Indiana State (10-6, 5-0 MVC) will be back in action Saturday against Missouri State, starting at 2:05 p.m. ET. The game will air live on ESPN3.
