FREDERICK, Md.--Junior Cameron Cook of the men's basketball team and senior Dyanna Prater of the women's basketball team have been tabbed Hood College athletes of the week for the week ending Nov. 19.

Cook, who is from Baltimore and a product of Calvert Hall, played a key role in helping the Blazers to a 1-1 record in the Washington Area Credit Union Tournament hosted by Washington & Jefferson College. Cook was consistent for the Blazers in both games, as he netted five threes in each contest and had 18 and 17 points, respectively. Cook also played every minute but four in the two games and he was named to the all-tournament team at the end of the weekend. A 2012 all-Capital Athletic Conference first team selection, Cook is a prolific shooter and if he continues at this pace he will be very difficult for opposing teams to stop.

Originally from Gaithersburg, Md., Prater helped lead Hood to its first opening-game victory since the 2010-11 season, a 52-49 triumph over Randolph College. Prater had a very impressive stat line as she accumulated 10 points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes of action. Not only was Prater active on the offensive end, she was also very active on the defensive end. Her on-the-ball defending was top class and her intensity wore off on her teammates and was a big reason why the Blazers came out on top. Hood will continue to feed off of its senior leader and Prater should have no issues continuing her early successful form.

The men's basketball team (1-1) next faces Immaculata in the team's first home matchup of the season on Nov. 20 with the game starting at 7 p.m. The women (1-0) have the week off and return to action after Thanksgiving to take on North Carolina Wesleyan at the Methodist Turkey Shootout Saturday at 6 p.m.
