Perry Announced to the Becky Hammon Mid-Major Player of the Year Watchlist
UT Martin Women's Basketball forward Chelsey Perry continues to rack up the pre-season accolades, and this one may be the most impressive. The Becky Hammon Mid-Major Player of the Year award is given out to the best mid-major women's basketball player at the end of the season. The award was first given out last season to South Dakota guard Ciara Duffy; Perry did finish as one of the five finalist for the award.
Its no surprise Perry ended up on this list; Last season, she averaged 23.1 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.7 blocks per game. Perry was named the 2020 OVC Player of the Year, and during this off season she was named to the Pre-Season All-OVC team. She was joined by fellow Skyhawk Maddie Waldrop.
Last year, the Skyhawks took home the OVC Regular Season Championship with a record of 22-10; but fell short in the OVC Tournament Championship to a red-hot Southeast Missouri State team. UT Martin will get their chance at revenge on December 19th, when the Skyhawks travel to take on SEMO.
