FREDERICK, Md.--Junior guard Trey Quinn of the men's basketball team and junior guard Dyanna Prater of the women's basketball team have earned their second selections of the season as the Hood College Athletes of the Week for the week ending Jan. 8.

Quinn's outstanding play powered the Blazers to a perfect 3-0 week and a tournament championship while Prater's spectacular effort on Monday helped the Blazers secure their first win at BB&T Arena.

Originally from Annapolis, Md., Quinn was named the most valuable player of the Johns Hopkins Blue Jay Invitational after tallying 32 points in Hood's two wins. Quinn knocked down 6-of-11 from the field for 13 points in the opening round game against Rutgers-Newark, then followed that up with a career- and game-high 19-point effort in the title game. After digging themselves into a 17-point hole in the first half against the host Blue Jays, Quinn put the Blazers on his back in the second half, scoring 14 points the final 20 minutes. Quinn then battled foul trouble in Saturday's CAC matchup at Marymount University, connecting on all three of his field goal attempts for seven points in an 11-point road win to round out the week.

Quinn averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals for the week. A starter in 12 of Hood's 13 games, he is now fourth on the team in scoring, third in rebounding, first in assists and second in steals.

The Blazers (9-4, 2-3 CAC) bring a five-game winning streak into Wednesday's CAC tilt with York College (Pa.) (7-7, 2-3 CAC). Hood will be playing its first home game since Dec. 10.

Prater had the most efficient scoring performance of her college career Monday, lifting the Blazers to their first win on their new home court. The Gaithersburg, Md., drilled 8-of-10 from the floor and 9-of-15 from the foul line for a game-high 25 points against Washington Adventist University to go along with six assists, five rebounds, four steals and a pair of blocks. Later in the week, Prater pumped in 30 more points in a pair of CAC contests against Stevenson University and Marymount University.

A starter in all 13 games for the blue-and-grey, Prater sits atop Hood's statistical chart in scoring (12.9 ppg), assists (45), steals (39) and minutes played (36.2 mpg).

Hood (3-10, 0-6 CAC) next hosts the Spartans (10-3, 4-1 CAC) in a CAC game Wednesday at BB&T Arena at 6 p.m.
