Freshman Cheyenne Parker (Queens, N.Y./Southwest Guilford) of the High Point University was named The Crons Brand Freshman of the Week by the Big South Conference on Tuesday. Parker received the honor after leading High Point in points, rebounds, steals and blocks against Gardner-Webb.
Parker set new career highs with 19 points, 16 rebounds and five steals. She shot 40 percent (6-15) from the floor and went 7-11 from the free throw line. Parkerâ€™s 16 rebounds is tied for the second-highest single-game total in High Point Division I history and is the highest single-game total for any active High Point player.
Parker has now been named Big South Freshman of the Week three times. She also earned the honor Nov. 16 and Dec. 14.
HPU continues its three-game home stand this weekend when the Panthers will play host to both Coastal Carolina and Winthrop. High Point will play the Chanticleers on Saturday at 4 p.m., and the Eagles on Monday at 7 p.m.
