AUGUSTA, Ga. – University of South Carolina Aiken women’s basketball player Kayla Harris has been selected the Peach Belt Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week.

The league office made the announcement on Monday, Dec. 10, 2012.

Harris has now claimed the weekly honor from the league twice in her career. She was also named Peach Belt Conference Player of the Week on Feb. 13, 2012.

Harris led a trio of Pacers in double figures in USC Aiken’s road win over Wingate on Friday, Dec. 7 with 25 points. Harris was 11-for-20 from the field in the game. Harris, who was 3-of-3 from the free throw line, also had a team-best eight rebounds, three steals and three assists.

Harris (Raleigh, N.C./Wakefield HS) after her 25 points in the win over Wingate now has 999 points in her Pacer career. The preseason All-American is just one point away from becoming the ninth women's basketball player in USC Aiken's NCAA Division II era to score 1,000 points or more in their career.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – University of South Carolina Aiken men’s basketball player Ronald Zimmerman has been tabbed as the Peach Belt Conference Player of the Week.

The league office made the announcement on Monday, Dec. 10, 2012.

The weekly honor from the league is the first of Zimmerman’s career. He is the first Pacer to garner conference Player of the Week plaudits since Alvin Brown last earned the weekly award on Jan. 17, 2011.

Zimmerman closed out USC Aiken’s home victory over Mount Olive on Thursday, Dec. 6 with a career-high 34 points.

Zimmerman (Columbia, S.C./Spring Valley HS) was 7-for-12 from beyond the arc in the game. The seven 3-pointers tied a career-high that he originally set in USC Aiken's home win over then 15th-ranked Winston-Salem State on Nov. 19.

Zimmerman, who was 10-for-15 from the field in total, also had five steals and one assist. He was 7-of-8 from the charity stripe.

The junior guard is currently second in the nation and first in the Peach Belt Conference with 5.0 3-pointers made per game.
