Third week of honor rolls for Shipp

For the third time this season, fifth-year guard Shi-Heria Shipp has been honored in both the American Athletic Conference and Philadelphia Big 5 weekly honor rolls.

After being out of the starting lineup for seven consecutive games, Shipp started in Temple’s last two games against Houston and Memphis. Both games resulted in comfortable wins for Temple, and ended a season-long four game losing streak.

Against the Owls’ last two conference foes, Shipp has averaged a double double of 11.5 points and 12.5 rebounds, while shooting 11 of 20 from the floor. In both games, Shipp registered game-highs in rebounds, grabbing 12 boards against Houston and 13 boards against Memphis.

Shipp’s 15 points against Houston were the most she had scored since a Dec. 19 victory against Howard, when she scored 22.

The transfer from George Washington has continued to be one of the Owls’ top producers, averaging 9.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, and nearly two steals and assists, per game.
