TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (December 19, 2017) – Tallahassee Community College's Jas Hill has been named NJCAA Region 8 Women's Basketball Player of the Week by the Florida College System Activities Association. 

The FCSAA released its weekly coaches' polls and player of the week selections on Tuesday. Tallahassee remained No. 2 behind Gulf Coast State College in the Region 8 Women's Basketball Coaches' Poll while the Eagle men stayed put at No. 5 in the men's rankings. 

Hill, a sophomore guard from Mobile, Ala., averaged 29.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.0 steals in two games during the voting period of December 11-17, leading the undefeated Eagles to wins over ASA College Miami and Palm Beach State College. 

Against ASA Miami, Hill scored 25 points in just 23 minutes of action as the Eagles cruised to the 101-21 victory. On Sunday against Palm Beach State, she tied a single-game school record, which she already shared, with eight three-pointers en route to a 34-point effort in Tallahassee's 109-43 victory and narrowly missed a triple-double, finishing with nine rebounds and a career-high nine assists. 

In the Palm Beach State win, Hill also surpassed Nikki Cooks to become the school's all-time leader in three-pointers with 134 and moved past Cooks and Zenovia White into fourth place on the Eagles' all-time scoring list. 

For the week, Hill shot 48.8 percent (20-of-41) from the floor, 46.2 percent (12-of-26) on three-pointers and hit all seven of her free throw attempts. 

Hill is currently the nation's second-leading scorer, averaging 24.0 points per game. 

Tallahassee will return to action at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at East Georgia State College.
