After leading the St. Joseph's College basketball team to a 2-0 week and their third-straight win, junior Kelly O'Donnell and freshman Emma Kiley were named the Skyline Conference Player and Rookie of the Week.

O'Donnell maintained her position as the league's top scorer and now ranks 12th in Division III. The junior poured in a career-high 40 points with five three-pointers in a win over Yeshiva.

On Saturday, she netted a team-high 24 and pulled down 13 rebounds for her eighth double-double of the season.

A seven-time Rookie of the Week as a freshman and a two-time All-Skyline Conference Team honoree, O'Donnell is selected as Player of the Week for the first time in her career.

Kiley picked up her fourth Rookie of the Week of the season. Against Yeshiva, she scored 25 points and grabbed 13 rebounds while swatting away five shots in just 22 minutes of action.

Against SJC Long Island, she netted 19 points and pulled down 14 rebounds while rejecting another quintet of shots.

The freshman big still ranks third in Division III with a program single-season record 81 blocks, and sits fourth in the Skyline with 10 double-doubles.
