earned MEAC Defensive Player of the Week honors for her efforts against UMBC and #6 Mississippi State last week, as announced by the league office on Monday afternoon. This is Graham's third MEAC Defensive Player of the Week award in her career, and first time winning the award outright.
The Upper Marlboro, Maryland native set a career-high with four blocks in the game versus Mississippi State and had a season-high four steals in the same afternoon. She pulled down an average of 12 rebounds per contest, while also adding 6 blocks and 6 steals to her overall weekly totals.
Over the course of the young season, she has averaged a double-double per game with 14.8 points and 12 boards per contest.
