            Natasha Mack is going to need some bigger shelves to hold all the awards she continues to win as a college basketball player.

           For the second time in the 2017-2018 basketball season, Angelina College's Mack has earned the National Junior College Athletic Association's Player of the Week honor.

            Having already notched the honor in November, Mack doubled down with a 65-point, 28-rebound week at the end of January. Mack scored 29 points and hauled in the Lady Roadrunners' 72-55 win at Coastal Bend College on Jan. 24 and followed up with a 36-point, 13-board showing in AC's 98-67 win over Paris College at Shands Gymnasium on Jan. 27.

            Those outbursts weren't flukes. Mack's year-long consistency has her leading Region XIV in several categories, including scoring (22.6 ppg), rebounding (13 rpg), field-goal percentage (60.1) and blocks (5.4 bpg).

            Mack, a former Lufkin High School standout, is the daughter of Bonnie and Anthony Mack.
