NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Duquesne senior forward Wumi Agunbiade has been named the Atlantic 10 Player of the Week, while VCU freshman guard Keira Robinson was named Rookie of the Week for games played between Jan. 6 – Jan. 12.

Agunbiade garners her second Player of the Week honor of the season and it’s the fifth time she has been honored during her career.  The Pickering, Ontario native led the Dukes to a pair of conference wins this week, including a 65-61 victory at Fordham, which snapped the Rams’ 12 game winning streak.  Against Fordham, Agunbiade scored a season-high 26 points on 10-of-11 shooting from the floor and tied a career-high with five assists, while grabbing nine rebounds at Saint Louis on Saturday.  

This marks the third time this season Robinson has been named Rookie of the Week. She averaged 14.5 points, 8.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals last week for VCU.  The Columbia, S.C. native led all scorers with a game-high 21 points and 10 assists in a key home win over Saint Joseph's for her first career double-double.  Robinson also went a perfect 6-of-6 at the free throw line to go along with five rebounds and two steals against the Hawks.  She began the week with eight points and seven assists at La Salle.
