Meagan Malcolm-Peck Earns Big 12 Weekly Honor
BOULDER - Colorado's Meagan Malcolm-Peck was named the Phillips 66 Big 12 Women's Basketball Freshman of the Week by a media voting panel for games from Dec. 21-27, the league office announced on Monday.
A 6-foot-2 forward from Boulder, Malcolm-Peck pulled down a team-high 10 rebounds with four points in Colorado's win over San Jose State - her second double-digit rebounding effort of the season. She also recorded personal bests with four steals and three assists while tying a career high with three blocked shots. Malcolm-Peck's four steals came in the first eight minutes of the game as the Buffaloes built a 46-13 lead in the first half. She ranks second in rebounding and blocks among freshmen in the Big 12 and is third in steals.
Malcolm-Peck earns her first career Big 12 weekly honor and it's the second time this season a CU player has been recognized by the league office. Brittany Spears was named Co-Player of the Week on Nov. 23. It is also CU's first Big 12 freshman honor since Alyssa Fressle scored "Rookie of the Week" accolades in the final week of the 2008-09 season.
Malcolm-Peck was honored along with Kansas senior Danielle McCray who was selected as the Big 12 Player of the Week.
