Red Raider Nation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Senior forward Kirsten Davis was named the United Soccer Coaches’ NCAA Player of the Week, the organization announced Wednesday afternoon. This comes a day after Davis was recognized as the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.  

The St. Louis, Mo., native is coming off a four-goal and one assist performance over Oklahoma and Kansas State this past weekend. Last Thursday night versus OU, Davis tallied her first career hat trick in the 7-0 rout, scoring three in the first half. Three days later, Davis added a goal and an assist to help lead the Red Raiders past K-State, 2-0.  

Davis’ 10 goals this year is tied for third in the nation – two goals behind the top mark.

Baylor and Texas join Texas Tech as the only unbeaten teams in conference play. Baylor is currently on a three-game win streak, while Texas is riding a five-game winning streak.
