For the first time in over 10 years a Gallaudet University women’s basketball player has been selected to the Team of the Week, a national team of five position players, selected once a week during the regular-season by the national website. The honor is bestowed to 5′-9″ junior center Easter Faafiti of Pittsburg, Calif., a three-time Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Player of the Week. Faafiti was named to the January 4-10 Team of the Week announced by the site on January 13.

Although many talented players have come through the squad’s ranks, Faafiti is the first Bison to be named to the Team of the Week since Gallaudet Hall of Famer Ronda Jo Miller was selected in 2000. Faafiti is also the first women’s basketball player from the CAC to be honored this season.

For the full story, including Faafiti’s stats, go to the Athletics website.
