Latson Earns Fourth Straight ACC Rookie of the Week

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State Women’s Basketball guard Ta’Niya Latson has earned her fourth consecutive ACC Rookie of the Week award, announced on Monday by the conference.

Latson becomes the first Seminole to win rookie of the week four times in a season, eclipsing the single-season record of three times held by former players Shante Williams (2003-04), Britany Miller (2005-06) and Jacinta Monroe (2006-07).

The Miami, Fla., native led the Seminoles with 25.5 points and shot 58.6 percent from the floor in wins over Wisconsin and Stetson last week. Against Wisconsin, in what was a tight fourth quarter, she delivered with 10 points in the period.

In FSU’s six tight games in the fourth quarter, she has averaged 7.8 points and shot 55.9 percent from the floor in those quarters – effectively becoming the closer in close ballgames.

Latson has now scored 20+ points in nine of her 10 games played. In FSU’s two wins last week, she averaged 25.5 points in 30.1 minutes played.

In her clutch performance at Wisconsin, she delivered 10 field goals to mark the fifth time this season she has reached double-digit field goals made.

Latson is the ACC’s only 20-point scorer this season, averaging 24.6 points per game so far.

In addition to her fourth ACC Rookie of the Week award, she also has two ACC Player of the Week honors to her freshman résumé as well.
