Carolina and Glover Named Athletes of the Week

Genesee Community College men's basketball guard Devante Carolina and women's basketball forward Shanell Glover have been named the Male and Female Athlete of the Week for the week of Feb. 9.

Carolina was a key part of the Cougars' conference win over Mercyhurst North East last weekend, helping GCC improve to 5-4 in Western New York Athletic Conference play.

After a loss to Monroe Community College earlier in the week, Carolina helped Genesee rebound on Saturday by scoring a career-high 21 points on 8-16 shooting.

He now averages 8.4 points per game and the freshman is third on the team in assists per game, averaging 3.3.

Glover went 6-9 from the floor and was the only Cougar in double figures against Mercyhurst North East last week, finishing with 15 points.

It was the seventh time this season that she recorded a double-digit points total and the sophomore also increased her rebounds per game average to 6.7, grabbing a team-high nine boards against MNE.

Genesee will play its final regular season home game this week on Tuesday night against Erie Community College.
