Broyles Named OCCAC Player of the Week

The Ohio Community College Athletic Association (OCCAC) has named Edison State Community College sophomore Kaylesha Broyles (Massillon Washington HS) the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II Women's Basketball Player of the Week for December 17-23. 

Broyles provided a huge spark off the bench for the Chargers of Edison State. She logged 30 minutes and posted a 16-point, 10-rebound double-double in a 72-55 road win at UC-Clermont. A half dozen boards came on the offensive end and Broyles added three assists and two steals. She was efficient offensively, converting 8-of-13 (62%) field goal attempts. 

Broyles is the third different Edison State student-athlete to be named OCCAC Player of the Week this season, joining Lauryn Gray (Nov. 12) and Clair Schmitmeyer (Nov. 26, Dec. 10).

Broyles is now averaging 7.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2.2 steals per game in her second season at Edison State (11-2, 1-1 OCCAC). 

Broyles and the Chargers will return to conference action at home versus Hocking College on Wednesday, January 9 at 5:30 p.m.
