NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For the third time this season, a Notre Dame women's basketball player has earned a spot on the BIG EAST Conference Honor Roll, as senior forward Devereaux Peters (Chicago, Ill./Fenwick) was tapped for this week's squad, the league office announced Monday. Peters was one of five players chosen for this week's honor (the first of her career), which recognizes outstanding weekly achievements by conference players who are not chosen as the BIG EAST Player of the Week.

In three games last week, Peters averaged 12.3 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.7 steals per game with a .581 field goal percentage (18-of-31) and two double-doubles in just 54 total minutes of action (18.0 per game) as Notre Dame recorded victories over Gonzaga (70-61) and Loyola Marymount (91-47) at the State Farm Holiday Hoops Classic in Seattle, Wash., before returning home to defeat Southeast Missouri State (97-21) on Sunday.

Peters also was named the Most Valuable Player of the State Farm Holiday Hoops Classic, the first MVP selection of her career and her second all-tournament team honor of the season, after she was recognized for her efforts at the WBCA Classic back in November.

Against Gonzaga, Peters posted her first double-double of the season (second of her career) with 10 points and 10 rebounds in just 22 minutes of action. She then chalked up 16 points (on 8-of-9 shooting), a game-high six rebounds and a game-best five steals (also a season high) in only 18 minutes against Loyola Marymount. She capped the week with her second double-double in three games (third of her career), ringing up 11 points and a season-high (and game-best) 13 rebounds in just 14 minutes against Southeast Missouri State.

A member of the 2008 BIG EAST All-Freshman Team, Peters currently ranks third on the team in scoring at 9.8 points per game, while leading the squad in rebounding (6.1 rpg.) and blocked shots (1.4 bpg.), and placing second in field goal percentage (.548), free throw percentage (.840) and steals (tied-2.1 spg.). She also ranks among the BIG EAST leaders in field goal percentage (seventh), blocked shots (11th) and steals (15th).

 

 

Peters joins junior guard Natalie Novosel (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Catholic) and sophomore guard Skylar Diggins (South Bend, Ind./Washington) as Notre Dame players who have been selected for the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll this season -- Novosel was chosen on Nov. 29 and Diggins was cited a week later on Dec. 6. In addition, freshman forward Natalie Achonwa (Guelph, Ontario/St. Mary's Catholic) was named the BIG EAST Freshman of the Week on Dec. 13.

The No. 13/14 Fighting Irish are preparing to resume BIG EAST play at 7 p.m. CT (8 p.m. ET) Wednesday when they travel to Milwaukee, Wis., for a matchup with Marquette at the Al McGuire Center. The game can be heard live on the radio in the Michiana area on Pulse FM (96.9/92.1), as well as worldwide on the Internet at www.UND.com.
