NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University women’s basketball redshirt senior guard Moon Ursin was named the American Athletic Conference Co-Player of the Week on Monday by the league office.

Ursin earned the honor after she recorded the first triple-double in program history in a win over Troy. She finished with 18 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in the 91-84 victory over the Trojans. The triple-double was also just the fifth in AAC women’s basketball history and the first since 2017.

This is the second time the Destrehan, Louisiana, native has been named as the AAC Player of the Week and her fourth weekly honor of the season. Ursin has landed on the weekly honor roll each of the past four weeks.
