CONWAY - Women's basketball freshman Shatia Cole has been tabbed The Crons Brand Big South Freshman of the Week for games played Dec. 13-19, the conference office announced on Tuesday.
This is the second time this season Cole has earned the honor. The Myrtle Beach native joins Brooke Weisbrod (1997-98), Amanda Stull (2006-07), Lacey Lyons (2006-07) and Sydnei Moss (2007-08) as the only freshmen in Chanticleer history to garner multiple Big South Freshman of the Week accolades.
Cole, making her second collegiate start, put in 13 points and dished out five helpers for the Chanticleers against South Carolina State. She connected on 67 percent of her shots from the floor, including one from 3-point land. Cole also pulled down one board and came away with three steals in the narrow 61-59 loss.
Coastal Carolina will have the next eight days off for the Christmas holiday before returning to the court as hosts to USC Upstate on Dec. 29 at 7 p.m. in its final non-conference matchup of the season.
