Marshall guard Abby Beeman was named as one of the five Ann Meyers National Player of the Week honorees by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association on Tuesday, Jan. 23.

“I’m so happy for Abby. She deserves this honor,” head coach Kim Caldwell said. “She is such a huge part of out team’s success. She is such a selfless player, she does so much more than score, and she creates shots for others.”

Beeman’s historic triple-double against the Old Dominion Monarchs led the Herd to a dominant win, as well as putting her in the national spotlight.

Beeman’s second triple-double of the season made her the fifth player in the NCAA to tally multiple triple-doubles and the first in Marshall Women’s Basketball history.

Beeman’s dominant week continued against Coastal Carolina, where she scored 22 points and surpassed the 2,000-point career mark. The guard averaged 18.5 points, 9.0 assists, 7.5 rebounds and 4.5 steals for the week.

“She leads us in the rebounds at 5-foot-5 and that’s all based on heart,” Caldwell said. “She is really becoming a great leader for us. I’m proud of her and blessed I get to coach her.”
