NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For the third week in a row, senior forward Devereaux Peters (Chicago, Ill./Fenwick) has been named to the BIG EAST Conference Women's Basketball Weekly Honor Roll, the league office announced Monday. Peters was one of five players chosen for this week's honor (also the second of her career), which recognizes outstanding weekly achievements by conference players who are not chosen as the BIG EAST Player of the Week.

In two games last week, Peters averaged 14.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game with a .722 field goal percentage (13-of-18) and a double-double as Notre Dame posted resounding BIG EAST wins over Louisville (80-60) and at Pittsburgh (82-50).

Against Louisville, Peters dropped in a game-high 14 points (on 7-of-9 shooting), including eight in a game-changing 27-4 Fighting Irish run that crossed over halftime and blew the game open. Three days later at Pittsburgh, she collected her fourth double-double of the season (all in the past seven games) with 15 points (on 6-of-9 shooting) and a game-high 10 rebounds, to go along with four assists, two blocks and two steals.

Peters currently ranks third on the team in scoring at 11.1 points per game, while leading the squad in rebounding (6.5 rpg.), blocked shots (1.5 bpg.) and field goal percentage (.570), and ranking second in free throw percentage (.861) and steals (2.0 spg.). She also ranks among the BIG EAST leaders in field goal percentage (fourth), blocked shots (eighth), steals (14th), rebounding (19th) and scoring (29th).

The first multiple BIG EAST weekly honoree for Notre Dame this season, Peters is part of a group of four Fighting Irish players that feature at least one conference weekly award recipient from all four classes. Junior guard Natalie Novosel (Lexington, Ky./Lexington Catholic) and sophomore guard Skylar Diggins (South Bend, Ind./Washington) join Peters 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. 11/12 Fighting Irish are back in action at 7 p.m. (ET) Tuesday when they play host to No. 16/17 Georgetown at Purcell Pavilion -- tickets are still on sale through Notre Dame's Murnane Family Ticket Office, open from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (ET) weekdays at Gate 9 of Purcell Pavilion and by phone at (574) 631-7356, or through the official Notre Dame athletics ticketing web site (www.UND.com/tickets).
