PLAYERS OF THE WEEK:

Lauren Carra • Delaware
Dunmore, Pa./Dunmore, Sr., Guard

Carra received CAA Women's Basketball Player of the Week honors after leading the Blue Hens to a pair of victories last week and knocked down a running jumper off the glass with two seconds remaining in regulation to secure a 59-58 comeback win over Princeton. The senior finished the week averaging 15.5 points per game to go along with 5.0 rebounds per outing. She added eight assists, two steals and one block on the week to help Delaware improve to 5-2 on the season. The senior, who currently sits at 23rd on the UD all-time scorers, needs just six points to break the 1,000 career-point mark.

Correal earned CAA Women's Basketball Player of the Week for the second time this season after leading the Tribe with 24.5 points per game last week to go along with 5.5 rebounds per outing. The senior forward poured in a career-high 28 points against Radford and became the Tribe's 17th player in school history to score 1,000 career points in the same outing. Correal shot 57.6 percent (19-for-33) from the floor, including 1-for-1 from beyond the arc, and went 10-for-13 (.769) from the free throw line. She finished the week with five assists, six steals and one block.
