Tech’s Wurm earns honors

Louisiana Tech freshman Mackenzie Wurm was named the Conference USA Freshman of the Week Monday following her performance in the Lady Techsters 74-57 win over McNeese State last Wednesday.

Wurm is the second Lady Techster this season to earn C-USA Freshman of the week honors, joining classmate Amaya Brannon (Nov. 15), after posting her first career double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds in the win against the Cowgirls.

In the win, Wurm helped the Lady Techsters shatter a 37-year old school record for most made free throws in a game (40), by going 8-of-8 from the line.

The Allen, Texas native entered last week with only six points and five rebounds before providing a spark off the bench to become the second Lady Techster this season to grab double-digit rebounds (12).

She is just the eighth Lady Techster to be named the Conference USA Freshman of the week since Tech joined the league back in 2013.

Wurm and the rest of the Lady Techsters will travel to Marshall on Thursday to open up Conference USA play at 6:30 p.m. inside the Cam Henderson Center.
