INDIANAPOLIS — Bellarmine University's Raven Merriweather garnered Great Lakes Valley Conference Player of the Week recognition for women's basketball, the league announced Monday.

The Knights senior guard averaged 25.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 3.0 steals over the team's two games. In addition, Merriweather shot 54.1 percent (20 for 37) from the floor and 87.5 percent (7 of 8) from the free throw line.

In Bellarmine's 93-79 victory over GLVC rival Wisconsin-Parkside on Thursday, Merriweather registered a game-high 24 points on 11-for-17 shooting and added four rebounds, three steals and two assists. The Louisville native followed on Saturday with a game-best and season-high 27 points with five rebounds, four assists and three steals in a 71-58 win over Kentucky State. The product of Sacred Heart Academy scored her 51 points over the two games in 60 minutes of action.

This is Merriweather's first career weekly award and the first for Bellarmine since Sarah Galvin was honored in February of 2016.

Merriweather is leading the Knights in scoring (19.8) and rebounding (6.9) this season.
