Griggs named Peach Belt Player of the Week for 3rd time this season
MORROW, GA – For the third time this season, Clayton State women's basketball player Drameka Griggs has been named the Peach Belt Conference's Player of the Week.
Griggs, a 5-5 guard, from Ellenwood, GA, received the honor from the Peach Belt office in Augusta, GA, after a week of milestones. She led the 3rd-ranked and undefeated Lakers (16-0; 9-0 PBC) to a trio of wins, averaging 20.3 points and 6.3 rebounds, while scoring her 1,000th career point and beating the then No. 3 team in the nation.
The senior began with a 20-point effort as the Lakers downed previously unbeaten and third-ranked USC Aiken on the road, adding nine rebounds, five assists and three steals. She then poured in a career-high 32 points, three off the Clayton State record, with seven rebounds in a win over Francis Marion on Monday.
Griggs joined Clayton State's 1,000-point club in the process and sits at 1,045 for her career, 8th on the school's all-time list.
For the week, she added 3.7 assists and 3.7 steals per game. She is second in the PBC in scoring, third in field goal percentage, second in steals and leads the league in free throw percentage. She also ranks among the NCAA Division II leaders in all three categories.
Griggs was also named the Peach Belt Conference Player of the Week on December 4th and January 7th of this season.
Clayton State will return to action on Thursday, hosting Young Harris in Peach Belt Conference play. Tip-off for the game is 5:30 p.m. at the Athletics & Fitness Center.
