CHARLESTON, S.C. - Junior baseball player Brandon Murray (Nassau, Bahamas) and junior women's basketball player Afreyea Tolbert (Teaneck, N.J.) earned College of Charleston Student-Athlete of the Week honors sponsored by Piggly Wiggly for the week of Feb. 18.

Murray helped College of Charleston to a 2-1 record on opening weekend, hitting .444 with three RBI and one home run. He extended his SoCon-best hitting streak to 14 games which goes back to the end of last season. Murray also induced four walks and did not strike out.

Tolbert notched her fourth double-double of the season with 16 points and 11 rebounds as she helped the Cougars defeat Samford on Monday for the first time in program history.
