WASHINGTON - Georgetown University women's basketball senior guard Faith Woodard (Brandon, Fla./Freedom) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday after helping the Hoyas (4-2) to a 3-0 week in her native Florida, including a pair of wins at the 2016 San Juan Shootout held in Dayton Beach, Fla.

Woodard averaged 18.7 ppg and 8.0 rpg for the week as well as tallying six steals, five blocks and four assists in three starts. She led the Hoyas in scoring with 20 points in a 66-53 win at Florida International University on Tuesday, and in a 67-60 victory over Wright State in the San Juan Shootout with 23 points. In the 68-54 victory over Penn State in the second game of the tournament, Woodard pulled in nine rebounds to lead the Blue & Gray.

Woodard is currently leading the squad in both points and rebounds with 17.3 ppg and 8.8 rpg. She also has a team-best 11 blocks for the season.

In the BIG EAST Conference, Woodard is the only player in the league to be ranked in the top five in scoring, rebounding, blocks and offensive rebounds.

This is her second-career nod to the honor roll after earning a spot on Nov. 23, 2015. It is also Georgetown's first weekly recognition this season.

Georgetown will travel to Towson University on Wednesday for a noon matchup against the Tigers. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
