SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Southern Conference announced today, Dec. 10, that Elon women’s basketball player Lenaira Ruffin has been named the CRONS Freshman of the Week.

She went 5-of-10 from the field, including one three pointer, and also pulled down three boards. The Burlington, N.C., native also dished out two assists and tallied three steals without a turnover in 28 minutes of play. Ruffin is the third Phoenix player in four weeks to earn this award.
