RALEIGH, N.C. -- Meredith College's Kate Perko was named the USA South Women's Basketball Rookie of the Week as announced Monday from the conference office. This marks her second weekly nod this season.
In last week's only contest, Perko led with a game high 23 points, adding nine rebounds, two steals and one assist as MCBB fell 61-59 to the visiting Piedmont International Bruins. She jumpstarted a 19-point comeback that fell just short in the final seconds of play.
The Avenging Angels complete a two-game series with the Bruins tonight in Winston-Salem. Tip-off is slated for 6:30 p.m.
