No one in the SEC had a week like LSU’s Danielle Ballard.

The junior guard scored 24 points Thursday in a 71-69 upset win at No. 15-ranked Mississippi State. She followed that Sunday with a career high-tying 25 points in an 84-79 upset of No. 10 Kentucky at the PMAC.

For that, the junior guard from Memphis, Tennessee, was honored Monday as the SEC Player of the Week.
