CHARLESTON, S.C. - Freshman men's basketball player Adjehi Baru (Abidjan, Ivory Coast) and sophomore women's swimmer Sarah Boyle (Columbia, S.C.) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week of Jan. 16.

Baru registered his first career double-double to lead College of Charleston to a 63-44 rout of Elon on Jan. 14 at TD Arena. Baru played the best game of his young career as he set new highs in points (18), rebounds (12), steals (3) and blocked shots (3). The highly-touted freshman shot an efficient 6-of-11 from the field and an improved 6-of-9 from the charity stripe against Elon. Baru did not commit a foul nor turn the ball over in 28 minutes of play and it marked the second time this season for him to lead the team in scoring. For the week, he averaged 13.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.5 blocks and shot 52.6 percent from the field (10-of-19) versus UNCG on Jan. 12 and Elon combined.

Boyle posted three strong finishes in the Cougars' meet at regional rival UNC-Wilmington. She took first place in the 100 fly (59.76), third place in the 200 back (2:08.99) and fourth place in the 100 back (59.43). Boyle also swam the opening leg of the team's fourth-place 200 medley relay squad.
