    NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Junior forward Kelley Siemon (Edina, Minn.) has been named the BIG EAST Co-Player of the Week and freshman guard Alicia Ratay (Lake Zurich, Ill.) has been selected the BIG EAST Co-Rookie of the Week after leading the fifth-ranked Notre Dame to a 2-0 last week with wins over Providence (90-60) and 18th-ranked Boston College (72-59).

    Siemon, who shares the award with Georgetown's Katie Smrcka-Duffy, is a first-time honoree. She averaged 17.0 points and 10.5 rebounds last week. Against Providence, Siemon scored a career-high 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds. In the Boston College contest, she recorded her first double-double of the season and second of her career as she scored 11 points and grabbed a personal high 14 rebounds. She shot 15-of-20 from the field (.750) in the two games and also played a career-high 36 minutes against the Eagles.

    Ratay, shares co-rookie-of-the week recognition with Mandy Wittenmyer of Pittsburgh, and earns the honor for the fourth time this season. She averaged 14.0 points and 2.0 rebounds as she scored 14 points and grabbed three rebounds against Providence and then followed that game with a 12-point and six-rebound performance versus the Eagles.

    Notre Dame is currently 19-2 on the season, 10-0 in the BIG EAST, and has tied a school-record with 15 consecutive victories.
