Smith’s 22 points in the win over Oklahoma was only to be outdone by setting a new career-high in points in a game with 30 on the road at Baylor, leading WVU to a 63-52 win. She also added eight rebounds and seven assists in the win in Waco.
Despite a stellar career at WVU, this is the first time Smith has been named Big 12 Player of the Week. She was awarded Freshman of the Week three times in 2019.
