This is the second time that the Sycamore, GA. native has earned the award this season.

Howard, a 5’7 sophomore guard who prepped at Turner High School, averaged 25 points, five rebounds, four assists and five steals per game in a pair of contests last week against Gadsden State (AL.) and Reinhardt University.

Howard is the conference-leader in points per game this season, averaging 15.8 points per game. She is shooting 51 percent from the field.

“Kadriana has played consistent and has been a key factor and contributor for our team,” said West Georgia Tech head coach Kenny Edwards. “She scores in variety of ways. She is a versatile player. She defends our opposition’s best player and she rebounds at a high level for a guard.”

West Georgia Tech (10-7) is off to its best start in school history having won seven games against NJCAA Division 1 competition.

The conference opener is still a little more than a week away, on Jan. 18 against Southern Crescent.

West Georgia Tech is back in action Friday night against another Division 1 junior college as they host Snead State (Ala.) at 5:30 p.m. at Oak Mountain Academy in Carrollton.

The men’s game between the two schools will follow at approximately 7:30 p.m.
