Vanderbilt women's basketball player Tiffany Clarke has picked-up a pair of player of the week honors following her performances to lead the Commodores to wins at Florida and over No. 10/13 Texas A&M last week.

Clarke has been named the National Player of the Week by ESPNW, as well as Player of the Week by the Southeastern Conference.

The senior forward opened the week by scoring 26 points, grabbing seven rebounds and blocking four shots to help Vanderbilt win at Florida, 68-57.

She followed that up by scoring a career-high 30 points to lead the Commodores to an upset of No. 10/13 Texas A&M. Clarke added seven rebounds against the Aggies.

Clarke was also big on the defensive end in both games. She held Florida's Jennifer George to 13 points, while limiting Texas A&M's Kelsey Bone, who entered the game leading the SEC in field goal percentage, to just 33.3% from the floor.

A native of Duluth, Ga., Clarke leads Vanderbilt in scoring and rebounding at 16.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game. She ranks third in the Southeastern Conference in field goal percentage (53.9%).

Clarke is the only player in the conference to rank in the top-five of scoring (fourth/16.4), rebounding (tied for fifth/8.1), field goal percentage (third/.539) and blocks (fifth/1.5).

Clarke and her two fellow seniors - Elan Brown and Gabby Smith - will be honored for Senior Night this Thursday, February 28, when Vanderbilt hosts Auburn. Tipoff is set for 8:00 p.m.
