MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Middle Tennessee State basketball standout Ebony Rowe graduated in May, but she’s still racking up athletic and academic honors.
Yesterday, Conference USA named Rowe the league’s Female Athlete of the Year. Rowe is the first female basketball player to receive the honor in nearly a decade.
MTSU’s Athletics spokesman Mark Owens says having Rowe awarded the league’s top honor was a perfect cap to the school’s first full year in C-USA.
“During her time here she was a two-time All-American, an Academic All-American, led us to four NCAA tournaments, and a bunch of championships. She’s just an unbelievable player.”
Rowe finished her MTSU career with a school record 2,453 points and 1,410 rebounds. She also holds 13 other school records including the single-season rebounding and double-doubles mark.
Having graduated from MTSU with a degree in engineering, Rowe plans to attend graduate school this fall at Georgia Tech.
