AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference office announced on Monday afternoon that USC Aiken women’s basketball player Hannah DeGraffinreed had been selected as the first Peach Belt Conference Player of the Week of the 2009-10 season.
The award is the second of the day for DeGraffinreed, who was also chosen as the USC Aiken Athletic Department Student-Athlete of the Week on Monday, Nov. 23.
In USC Aiken's regular season-opening three wins last week, DeGraffinreed averaged 18.3 points and 12.0 rebounds per game.
DeGraffinreed collected a double-double in all three of USC Aiken's victories last week. Lethal from the field last week, DeGraffinreed finished her first three regular season contests in a Pacer uniform shooting 63.3 percent (19-for-30) from the field. She was 17-for-22 (77.3 percent) from the free throw line.
DeGraffinreed (Raleigh, N.C./Merrimack College) finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds in USC Aiken's season-opening victory over Anderson. She also dished out a team-high three assists on the night.
DeGraffinreed once again led the Pacers in their win last Friday against Glenville State. The sophomore transfer ended USC Aiken's first game of the 2009 Lady Jaguar Tip-Off Classic at Christenberry Fieldhouse with 27 points and 16 rebounds. DeGraffinreed was an impressive 8-for-12 from the field and 11-for-14 from the free throw line in the contest.
