In the two final games of the regular season, Cameron recorded her ninth and tenth 20-point outings, averaging 21.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists to pace the No. 17 Golden Eagles to wins over Texas Wesleyan inside Bill George Arena and Southwestern Christian (Okla.) on the road.

Cameron shot 48.6 percent from the floor over the two victories (17-of-35) and turned in 21 and 22-point performances, respectively, and accounted for nearly one-third of John Brown's total offense. With the regular season now complete, Cameron finished the year ranked 11th in the nation in total scoring (499), 13th in shooting percentage (53.2) and 19th in points per game (17.2).

"Baily has been playing really well," said head coach Jeff Soderquist. "Such a great honor for her to win this in three of the final four weeks."

Cameron has now won SAC Player of the Week honors four times in her career.

The Golden Eagles captured home-court advantage in the SAC tournament quarterfinals on Tuesday (Feb. 28) and will host Science & Arts (Okla.) in a 7 p.m. tip off. The winner of the quarterfinal will move onto Oklahoma City with the other three quarterfinal winners to play in the semifinals at Oklahoma City University on March 3 and 1 and 3 p.m., respectively. The tournament title game is slated for 1 p.m. on Saturday (March 4).
