Roth tabbed as ICCAC Athlete of Week

AMES — Marshalltown Community College sophomore Alyssa Roth has been named the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference player of the week for January 15-21.

In three games during that span, Roth accounted for 62 points and 14 rebounds while shooting 58 percent from the floor while leading the Tigers to a 2-1 record.

Her best game of the three came against Little Priest Tribal College, where she put up 22 points on 8-for-11 shooting. She also scored 22 in the team’s win over Central (Neb.) Community College.

“Alyssa has been playing well since the holiday break,” MCC head coach Steve Garber said of the guard from Clinton. “She has a great understanding of the offense and plays with intensity. Her play last week shows her skill level and hopefully she will continue to play with the same efficiency down the stretch.”
