For the second time in 2017-18, women's basketball center Tierra McGowan has been named the Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week.

McGowan recorded a game-high 14 points and 15 rebounds (nine offensive), complemented by three assists, three steals, and one block in a 79-40 rout of Chicago State in the Chicago native's homecoming in the Windy City last Sunday. McGowan's has secured double-digit rebounds in each of her first six contests in a Morehead State uniform.

McGowan, who transferred from Rock Valley (Ill.) last summer, earned the season's first OVC Newcomer of the Week award on Nov. 12 after scoring 15 points and grabbing 15 boards in the Eagles' season-opening 75-71 win over Sacramento State.
