Riley, Ratay Claim BIG EAST Weekly Honors

Feb. 21, 2000

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Junior center Ruth Riley (Macy, Ind.) and freshman guard Alicia Ratay (Lake Zurich, Ill.) were winners of the BIG EAST weekly awards after leading the fifth-ranked Irish to a 2-0 week with victories on the road at Villanova (70-52) and at eighth-ranked Rutgers (78-74 in overtime).

Riley was named the player-of-the-week along with Svetlana Abrosimova of Connecticut earning the award for the second time this season. She averaged 20.0 points and 11.0 rebounds, scoring 14 points and grabbing eight rebounds against Villanova and then recording her fourth double-double of the season with 26 points and a season-tying 14 rebounds against Rutgers.

Ratay is named the rookie-of-the-week for the sixth time (the most by any freshmen) in 1999-2000 as she averaged 19.0 points and 7.0 rebounds. In the overtime win at Rutgers, Ratay set the BIG EAST three-point field goal percentage record as she made all seven of her attempts. She finished the game with 26 points and 10 rebounds in recording her second double-double of the season. Ratay also had 12 points and four rebounds against Villanova. In the two games, the freshman guard shot 73.3 percent from the field (11-15) and was seven-of-nine from three-point range.
