Not just a Face In the Crowd

JSU volleyball player Brittney Whitten is featured in this week's Sports Illustrated for becoming only the second player in OVC history to win Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week in the same week. She did it the week of Sept. 22. Whitten is featured in the Faces in the Crowd section.

The Gamecocks are 6-14 overall, 2-7 in the OVC, and fighting for their playoff lives. They have lost four in a row in the league and are currently tied for eighth with Eastern Kentucky, two games out of the sixth and final playoff spot, with nine to play. They play at second place Tennessee Tech Saturday.

The Gamecocks have won the OVC regular season the last two years and gone to the NCAA Tournament two of the last three years.
