Florida State senior Tasheika Allen has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week, league officials announced Monday afternoon. Allen had an amazing week, averaging 23.0 points and 4.5 rebounds to guide FSU’s to two wins last week. The guard shot 59 percent (13-22) from the field, 60 percent (6-10) from three point range and 93 percent (14-15) from the free throw line.
In the home win vs. then-ACC-undefeated Maryland, Allen led the team with a season-high 25 points, including 3-for-4 from three-point range, in 28 minutes of play. On the road at Wake Forest, she led the team with 21 points, including 8-for-8 from the free throw line, and grabbed seven rebounds and two steals. Overall on the year, Allen is averaging a team-leading 15.0 points per game and has a team-high 26 three-pointers. She has scored in double figures in 13 games, including six games of 20 or more points.
Allen becomes the second Seminole to earn ACC honors in as many weeks. Last week, freshman guard Shante Williams earned ACC Co-Rookie of the Week accolades.
