CHICO, Calif. – Etching her name in the Cal State San Marcos women’s basketball record books, sophomore Akayla Hackson has been picked as CCAA Player of the Week for Feb. 18-24. She shares the weekly honor with Humboldt State’s Tyra Turner.
Hackson averaged 22.5 points on 71.4 percent shooting, with 3.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists in a pair of road victories, but Thursday was the record-setter.
Hackson broke the Cougars’ single-game record for 3-pointers against San Francisco State, swishing 8-of-10 of her attempts from beyond the arc while compiling a career-best 26 points. She also played an integral part in Cal State San Marcos setting a single-game team record for 3-pointers, as the Cougars connected on 12 of their attempts from distance, shooting a season-best 57.4 percent from beyond the arc.
While official seeding is still yet to be determined, Cal State San Marcos clinched a spot in the 2018-19 CCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament with two games remaining on their regular-season schedule. First, the Cougars battle Cal State East Bay on Thursday before capping their conference slate against Cal State Monterey Bay on Saturday.
