LAWTON, Okla. (Feb. 20, 2012) — Coming off a 54-48 victory over Texas Woman’s in the Aggie Gym, Sabelle Diata was has been named the Lone Star Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week for the fourth time this season.
Diata was a force against the Pioneers, finishing the game with 19 points, eight rebounds, six blocks and one steal.
