MEMPHIS - Redshirt freshman guard Mooriah Rowser earned her first career honor from the American Athletic Conference as she was named the league's Freshman of the Week by the league office on Monday, November 11.
Rowser is the Tigers' leading scorer through the first two games of the season, averaging 14.0 points and 5.5 rebounds a game. She is shooting 40.0 percent from the field through the home-opening weekend.
Memphis is 1-1 on the season with a Friday night non-conference contest at Wright State on the slate for this week. That will be the young Tigers squad's first road trip of the season, and is a return trip to a Wright State team that is off to a 1-0 start after a 67-64 road win at Southern Illinois on Friday. Memphis defeated Wright State, 109-68, last year at Elma Roane Fieldhouse.
It was easily a season-high point title for Memphis, eclipsing the 92 points the Tigers scored at home in a Game One 92-42 rout over Grambling State.
The Raiders will host Miami on Tuesday night before the Tigers roll in to town for a 7 p.m. (ET) match-up on Friday.
The Tigers return home on Monday, Nov. 18th in a non-conference game against Jackson State that will be Memphis' last home game in November.
