Youngstown State redshirt junior Sarah Cash has been named the Horizon League Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the period ending Dec. 17, the conference office announced on Monday.

Cash, a native of Lordstown, Ohio, tied for game-high honors with 24 points while adding four steals, two assists and two rebounds in YSU's 69-67 win over Northern Arizona on Saturday. The forward capped off her outstanding performance by making the game-winning basket with 4.3 seconds left. For the day, Cash was 8-for-15 shooting from the field and 8-of-11 from the free-throw line.

For the year, Cash leads the Penguins with 11.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, and she ranks third in the Horizon League with a .579 field-goal percentage.

Youngstown State will conclude its non-conference schedule on Wednesday as it hosts Penn State Beaver in the Fifth Annual Chick-Fil-A School Field Trip Game. Tipoff at Beeghly Center is set for 11 a.m.
