Mineral Area freshman forward Holly Forbes (34) has earned her third Region 16 women's basketball Player of the Week honor of this season.

Mineral Area freshman forward Holly Forbes has been named Region 16 Division I Women’s Basketball Player of the Week (Feb. 5-11) for a third time this season.

The Lady Cardinals beat Jefferson 65-44 in their lone contest last week. Forbes was key in keeping the upset-minded Vikings at bay with her leadership and relentless defensive efforts, especially during the fourth quarter.

Mineral Area stretched a modest seven-point lead through three periods by outscoring Jefferson 28-14 over the final 10 minutes, including an 18-0 run.

Forbes recorded her sixth double-double of the season with 17 points and 11 rebounds, and joined Moberly center Anisha George as the second three-time award honoree this winter.

The North County graduate continues to lead the team by averaging 14.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game, along with a 60.3 field goal percentage that ranks 12th nationally.
