Area Students Members of the McMurry War Hawk Women's Basketball
The following scholar-athletes are members of the 2017-18 McMurry University War Hawk women's baskeball team.
McMurry University's women's basketball team has been picked fifth in the American Southwest Conference West division in the 2017-18 pre-season poll of the league's coaches, sports information directors and selected media members. The War Hawks are coming off of a 9-15 (5-11 ASC) season and sport a current roster with nine returning players from last year's squad.
Senior Sham Hunter and sophomore Skyler Reyna were both named to the ASC's pre-season "watch list," as well. Hunter is entering her third season as a War Hawks, earning ASC All-West division second team accolades last season. Hunter led McM in several categories, including: scoring (12.7 p.p.g.); rebounds (8.6 r.p.g.); steals (65); assists (77); blocks (6), and; free throw shooting (.771/74-96). She had a team-best six double-doubles in 2016-17.
Reyna, in her first collegiate season, proved to be a gem among an impressive freshman class assembled by the McMurry Head Coach Brittany Densman-Roes last year. Reyna was tabbed on both the ASC West Division honorable mention list, as well as the ASC West All-Freshman Team. Reyna registered a total of five double-doubles this season, while averaging 11.9 points and 7.3 boards per game. She shot better than 39 percent from the floor and nearly 72 percent from the free throw stripe.
