Knight Named SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week
SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Women's basketball sophomore Anna Claire Knight has been named the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for Jan. 23, the league office announced today.
Knight drained a three-pointer as the buzzer sounded to lift the Eagles to a 61-58 win over Wofford Sunday afternoon, the second game-winning, buzzer-beating shot of her career. The Dublin, Ga., native led the Eagles with 16 points and added six rebounds and a blocked shot in GSU's only game of the week. Knight ranks second on the team in scoring at 9.3 points a game and leads the Eagles in rebounding with 5.8 an outing. The pre-sport management major holds a 3.78 grade point average.
Knight is the third Eagle to earn SoCon Student-Athlete of the Week honors, joining volleyball seniors Kate Van Dyke and Moriah Bellissimo.
The Georgia Southern women's basketball team starts a two-game road swing at UNCG Saturday. The Eagles face Elon on the road Monday, and following that contest, play seven of their final 10 contests in Hanner Fieldhouse.
