Fredericksburg, Va. – For the second time in three weeks, a St. Mary's College of Maryland women's basketball player has been selected as the Capital Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week. This time around, junior Kobe Chaney (Edgewater, Md./South River) earned the weekly conference honor for the week of January 2.

Chaney was selected as the CAC Player of the Week after pouring in career-bests of 20 points and 18 rebounds in leading the Seahawks to a 73-60 non-conference win over Penn State Behrend on Friday. She owned a first-half double-double on 10 points and 11 boards to lead all scorers at halftime.

The 5-11 forward also contributed a career-high 10 field goals (10-for-18; 55.6%), a season-high five assists, three blocks and two steals in the victory. The double-double was Chaney's third of the season, helping St. Mary's to its fourth win of the season and a two-game win streak.

She is currently second in the conference with 11.2 rebounds per game and 2.0 blocks per game. Chaney also ranks 32nd in the nation with 8.0 defensive rebounds per game and rebounds per game while coming in 45th with 112 rebounds, 52nd in blocks per game, and 53rd with 20 blocks.

St. Mary's (4-6, 0-4 CAC) looks to continue its winning ways in 2018 when the Seahawks welcome Southern Virginia University (8-2, 2-2 CAC) to the Michael P. O'Brien Athletics & Recreation Center Arena tomorrow, Wednesday, January 3 on Military Appreciation Night. Tip-off is 6:00 p.m.
