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.).
