Another day another major honor for LSU junior guard Danielle Ballard.

Ballard was named Tuesday as the Ann Meyers Drysdale National Player of the Week by the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. This followed honors Monday from the SEC, ESPNW and LSWA.

Ballard averaged 24.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 3.0 steals in LSU’s two upset wins over top 15-ranked teams.

She had 24 points in a 71-69 double overtime win Thursday at then No. 15 Misssissippi State and a career high-tying 25 points Sunday in an 84-79 win over then No. 10 Kentucky.

Ballard is averaging 14.3 points per game in her four games since returning from a 14-game suspension to start the season.

Ballard was not made available for interviews Tuesday.
