Moberly’s Grace Billington and Salisbury’s Cooper Francis Receive Player of the Week Honors

Moberly’s Grace Billington and Salisbury’s Cooper Francis have been named this week’s Hawkins-Harrison Insurance Players of the Week. Billington made history Saturday night at the Sophie Cunningham Classic, as she became the Moberly Lady Spartan all-time leading scorer. Billington’s 18 points, 10 rebounds and six assists helped her team defeat Centralia 69-46 in a rematch between the two sides.

Cooper Francis willed his team throughout the week at the Salisbury Invitational Tournament. Francis dropped 28 and 24 points in the first two rounds, and finished with a 25-point performance against Glasgow. The Panthers captured their home tournament championship for the second year in a row with a 67-53 win over the Yellowjackets.
