Player of the Week: Alabama's Brittany Davis exploded for a career-high 23 points off the bench in the Crimson Tide's 83-77 home victory over previously undefeated North Carolina on Sunday. The first-year player for Alabama shot an impressive 10-of-12 clip from the floor, including tying her career best after going 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. Davis led all scorers, while also adding five rebounds and two assists. Davis has scored in double figures over the last three games and is averaging a team-best 15.3 points over those three contests. For the year, Davis leads the team in three-point percentage, shooting 39 percent from the three-point line.

Freshman of the Week: Vanderbilt's Koi Love scored the game-tying and game-winning baskets in the final minutes to propel Vanderbilt to a 75-69 win over Eastern Kentucky on Sunday. Love finished with a career-high 17 points, including six of nine points in a game-winning 9-3 run for the Commodores, who trailed 66-62 with under four minutes remaining before Love's heroics. Love missed a jump shot, grabbed her own rebound and put back the layup to tie the game at 69-69 with 1:48 to play. She then grabbed another offensive rebound and made the put back for a 71-69 lead with 49 seconds to play. It was the game winner. Love finished two rebounds shy of a double-double with a game-high 17 points on 7-for-13 (.538) shooting. She added eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in the come-from-behind victory. The win helped Vanderbilt match last season's win total in just 10 games this year.
