NORFOLK, Va. -- Old Dominion senior guard Shareese Grant (Va. Beach, Va.) picked up Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Week honors for the second week in a row it was announced on Monday by the conference office.

The 5-8 Virginia Beach, Virginia native led Old Dominion to two victories last week, a 30 + point victory over East Tennessee State and a 69-61 win over #16/19 Rutgers.

Grant led all scorers in the 86-52 win over the Lady Bucs as Old Dominion posted back-to-back 30-point wins for the first time since the 2001-02 season. On Sunday, Shareese Grant once again led all scorers with 21 points against a ranked Scarlet Knight squad to give Old Dominion its third victory over a ranked opponent at the Ted Constant Convocation Center. Of her 21 points, Grant scored 17 of them from the free throw line setting a new school record for free throws made in a game. She resets the record held by Nancy Lieberman that was set back on January 10, 1978 against Pittsburgh.

Grant, who has led Old Dominion in scoring in all four games thus far, is averaging a team and league leading-best 19.8 points per game.

The Lady Monarchs return to action on Friday, December 10th when they travel to Charlottesville, Virginia to take on the Virginia Cavaliers at 7:00 p.m.
