RALEIGH, N.C. -- Meredith College freshman Kate Perko swept the USA South women's basketball weekly honors as announced Monday from the conference office. She was named both the Player and Rookie of the Week for her performance in MCBB's only game last week, a win over Christopher Newport.

Perko delivered a game-high performance with 27 points, 14 rebounds to lead the Avenging Angels in their first victory in program history in 15 meetings versus the Captains. She added four blocks and one assist in her 36 minutes played.

MCBB returns to action tonight playing host to the Piedmont International University Bruins, as member of the National Christian College Athletic Association. The Angels travel to Winston after Thanksgiving to complete the series in Winston-Salem.
