Junior guard Dereese Owens has been named the Skyhawk Athlete of the Week for the week of Nov. 23.

Owens had a spectacular week, averaging 23.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game as she led the Skyhawks to a 2-0 week. She scored a season-high 32 points to go along with four rebounds, four assists and three steals in a 66-53 win over Reinhardt on Wednesday. She then collected 15 points and seven rebounds in a 73-58 victory at Bluefield on Saturday. Owens made nine three-pointers on the week and shot 47% (17-36) from the floor.

Owens leads the AAC in scoring this season at 20.4 points per game. The Nashville, Tenn. native has also made a conference-leading 21 three-pointers and is fifth in total assists with 22 helpers. This is her second career conference player of the week award.

Point has burst out to a 8-0 start this season, and is one of only three remaining undefeated teams in the AAC. The Skyahwks will look to remain unbeaten when they travel to Laurinburg, N.C. on Tuesday, Nov. 24 to face the St. Andrews University Knights.
