What a difference a year makes. Sophomore Andrea Howard came to Georgetown College as one of the better high school prospects in Kentucky. She chose GC over Transylvania University and Eastern Kentucky University.

While it was slow going at times during her rookie campaign, first-year head coach Andrea McCloskey is reaping the rewards of Howard's maturation. This past week she averaged 19 points and eight rebounds -garnering her the first Mid-South Conference Player of the Week honor.

She scored a career-high 17 points in a win at Trevecca Nazarene. The Frankfort native followed that up with a 21-point performance against Southern Polytechnic State. She also hauled in 10 rebounds, equaling a career high, and giving her a second double-double in four games.

She finished the week with 19 points and eight rebounds in Georgetown's first loss.

She appeared in 14 games a season ago, scoring a total of 32 points on 20 shot attempts. Thus far this season, Howard has started all five games and scored 76 points on 54 attempts.

The sophomore guard hit just two three-pointers a season ago, but has knocked down 10-of-18 through the early portion of the schedule.

"She has really come on for us this year," McCloskey said. "She is working really hard and gives us such an asset on the court.

"Her strength and height makes her a tricky match-up for opposing teams and allows us to play bigger even with a more guard set."

McCloskey can have four guards on the floor, giving her speed and range, while not sacrificing the teams rebounding or physical presence down low - evident by Howard's team-leading scoring and rebounding totals. Along with her 76 points, she has 42 rebounds.
