CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Campbell junior guard MaKala Rouse(Dudley High School) has been named the Big South Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday. The Camels will close out the first half of their league schedule Tuesday night when they put their five-game winning streak on the line against Liberty inside Gore Arena.
Rouse(Dudley HS) nearly averaged a triple-double between a pair of Camel victories last week to earn her first career Big South weekly honor. Her stat line included 15.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.0 assist per game while shooting .570 from the field and a near perfect 8-for-9 (.880) from the free throw stripe.
Rouse earned her first double-double of the season with 10 points and 11 rebounds in a victory over High Point on Tuesday. The Greensboro, North Carolina native followed it up with a career-high 20 points and just missed her second-straight double-double with a career-high nine assists in a tough road victory at Gardner-Webb on Saturday. Rouse iced the game away at GWU with a perfect 6-for-6 showing from the free throw stripe in the Camels’ final three possessions of the game.
Rouse is the third Camel to receive Big South honors this season. She replaces teammate Summer Price as the reigning player of the week and Breanna Foster received the league’s first freshman of the week nod back on November 14.
