and ranks fifth among the nation's leading scorers.

Deborah Holcomb has been on a torrid scoring pace throughout the 2014-15 season, but her recent contributions have garnered notice outside of St. Louis Community College.

The sophomore shooting guard was named the NJCAA Division II Player of the Week after averaging 35 points and 5.5 steals across a week that included wins over Cottey College and Weber International.

Holcomb has been a steady offensive force for the Archers, as she entered this week ranked fifth nationally with 23.6 points per game. Her production has been a key behind the Archers’ 16-3 start.

“Deb was on fire today, and we’re a great ballclub when she’s on fire,” head coach Shelly Ethridge said following Holcomb’s 36-point outburst in an 84-56 win over Cottey College on Jan. 10.

“Her maturity level is just so high, and everything she does is for the team,” Ethridge said. “We have to tell her to score. We have to tell her to not pass, because that’s just who she is. My goal for her is to go to the highest level she can play at. I would like for her to be an All-American because I think she’s certainly deserving of it.”
