This season, Coach Jeff Rinehimer has called on his senior guard for more than offense, but also to be more of a leader with her fellow classmates.

Myers has responded in both regards, and for her efforts has been named The Phoenix's Female Athlete of the Week.

The 5-foot-6 Myers is tied with Kali Schloth for the team lead in scoring averaging 14 points per contest.

While playing primarily at the off-guard position, Myers has also helped out with some of the ball handling duties when the Rams are in need of breaking their opponents' full-court press.

She is also right there helping to make sure the offense is executed.

"As a guard I know that I have to penetrate to help the offense," Myers admitted. "This is a big man's game, and there are times when you need to create your own shot. If there is an open look, I know I have to take the shot."

Myers is among the Pioneer Athletic Conference top outside shooters having drained more than 15 three-pointers this season.

Having been involved in basketball since she was approximately five-years-old, Myers certainly has had enough time to practice over the years.

It is her passion to succeed and for the game that keeps bringing her back to the sport.

"I just love basketball," said Myers.

The Rams are in the midst of a run through the second half of the PAC-10 schedule with hopes of landing one of the top four spots and a berth in the Final Four tournament.

"We know we are a talented team," said Myers. "We have goals set for ourselves. We have to go about proving that we are the best team in the league.

And what were those goals the Rams set?

"We want to have a successful season," she added. "We want to get to the Final Four, and give ourselves the chance to win it. We want to go out every night and leave everything on the floor."

At the conclusion of this season, Myers will be focusing all of her attention of making a college choice.

Right now, she has three options she is still looking in to, including Millersville, Randolph Macon (Va.) and Lebanon Valley, where she would like to major in elementary education and psychology.
