NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Rhode Island sophomore guard Tayra Melendez has been named the Atlantic 10 Conference Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, while George Washington’s Caira Washington was named the league’s Rookie of the Week.

Melendez helped Rhode Island to its first three-game winning streak with wins over UMass – Lowell and Vermont last week.  Melendez scored a career-high 29 points, including 24 in the second half, as Rhode Island rallied from a 10-point deficit. Her 11 field goals against the Riverhawks were a career high and tied Melendez for the fifth most in a game in school history. The Mattapan, Mass. native scored 13 points and blocked three shots in a win over Vermont. It was Rhody’s third straight win, marking the first three-game win streak since the 2007-08 season.  For the week, she averaged 21 points, 3.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots.

Washington led GW with 15.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game in two wins last week. The Brandywine, Md., native shot 66.7 percent (12-for-18) from the floor and added four steals, and six of her 19 rebounds on the week came on the offensive glass. Washington posted her second double-double of the season in GW’s 56-50 win over Loyola on Monday, tallying career highs of 15 points and 13 rebounds to go with three blocks and three steals. She made 7-of-11 field goals against the Greyhounds.  Washington followed that performance with another 15 points on 5-of-7 shooting in the Colonials’ 75-60 victory over Morgan State on Saturday. She added six rebounds and a steal against the Lady Bears. For the season, Washington leads GW with 7.9 rebounds per game and ranks second on the team with 10.4 points per contest.
