    He is a junior - the release has it wrong.

    This just in ...

    Alabama sophomore guard Daisha Simmons has been named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week for women’s basketball, which was announced by the league on Monday.

    Simmons guided the Crimson Tide to a pair of wins last week against Houston and Arkansas-Pine Bluff. In Tuesday’s game against the Cougars, the Jersey City, N.J., native drained a career-best 22 points, hitting four of her six three-pointers and all six of her free throws. Simmons also had a stellar all-around performance in the win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff, contributing 10 points, seven steals, five rebounds, five assists and three blocks.
