USF's Wynne named Big East Most Improved Player
USF senior guard Jasmine Wynne, who went from averaging 3.4 points last season to a team-best 15.6, was named Thursday as the Big East Most Improved Player.
Wynne, who guided the Bulls to an 8-8 record in the Big East and the 9th seed in the conference tournament that starts Friday, also led the Bulls in rebounding as a 5-foot-7 guard, averaging 5.8 per game, and finished one steal short of leading the Big East at 2.6 per game.
Wynne played a key role in Monday's overtime victory against Providence, scoring 15 points in a win that should help the Bulls secure a spot in the Women's NIT. Wynne persevered through injuries during his USF career, missing the end of her sophomore year with an ACL tear in her knee.
