St. LOUIS -- Sophomore guards Tyonna Snow and Kenzie Williams are Missouri State’s representatives on all-Missouri Valley Conference women’s basketball teams, the league announced Wednesday (March 12). Both players are honorable mention all-league selections, while Snow also appears on the all-defensive team.

The MVC leader in steals by nearly one per game, Snow’s 86 thefts this season rank her 11th on MSU’s single-season list while her 2.97 per game average rates 10th nationally. The sophomore from Blue Springs, Mo., has at least three steals in 16 games this season with six or more in four contests, including a three-game stretch with 19 thefts, the most for any three-game span in school history.

Snow also leads the team with 393 total points while ranking second with a 13.6 per game scoring average. She has scored at least 10 points a team-best 21 times this year and led the Lady Bears in steals 24 times in 29 games while attempting 199 free throws for the No. 7 season total in school history. Snow averages 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.

A native of nearby Mt. Vernon, Williams was MSU’s leading scorer through 21 games before an injury cut her season short in early February. She averaged 14.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals this year, ranking sixth in the MVC in scoring, seventh in 3-point accuracy (.372) and six in free throw percentage (.794).

Williams led the Lady Bears in scoring in 10 of her 21 games, including a season-high 32 points against Lamar, and is a two-time MVC Player of the Week. She scored in double figures in each of the season’s first 15 games, the longest streak to start a season at MSU since Kari Koch in 2005.

The Lady Bears (13-16, 8-10 MVC) begin play at the conference tournament in St. Charles, Mo., Thursday at 7:07 p.m. against 10th-seeded Southern Illinois.
