McKay Named Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week
Saint Mary's women's basketball's Megan McKay posted a double-double in the Gaels' victory to earn the honor
MORAGA, Calif. — Megan McKay was named the Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Dec. 11-17 after leading all players in points and rebounds to help the Saint Mary’s women’s basketball team open the Basketball Travelers Inc. Invitational with a victory over UT Martin.
McKay scored a game-high 19 points and pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds in the Gaels’ 69-58 win over the Skyhawks on Sunday. She only missed one shot from the floor (6 for 7) and went 7 for 8 from the free-throw line. She had 10 rebounds on the defensive end alone while adding four offensive boards. McKay’s 14 rebounds were only two shy of her career-best mark of 16, which she achieved twice last season.
McKay scored nine of her game-high 19 points in the third quarter, helping the Gaels overcome a 34-32 halftime deficit and take the lead for good. She scored all five of the Gaels’ final points in the third from the free-throw line while SMC held UT Martin scoreless for the last 3 minutes, 44 seconds of the period.
The Gaels continue play in the Basketball Travelers Inc. Invitational on Monday versus Eastern Washington and conclude the tournament on Wednesday versus host Purdue. Fans can find live coverage links on SMCGaels.com.
