The Genesee Community College's athletes of the week for the period ending Feb. 24 are Kierra Perl (Attica, NY) from the women's basketball team and Brian Fobbs (Rochester, NY) from the men's basketball team.
Perl just missed recording back-to-back double-doubles by a single rebound last week against No. 1-ranked Monroe Community College and Jamestown Community College, but still averaged double-double statistics in scoring 27 points to go with 20 rebounds in the pair of games. Although she led the Cougars in scoring in both games last week, her better of the two was in Jamestown with a 17-point performance that accounted for 40 percent of the Cougars' offense.
Fobbs averaged 26 points, 10.5 rebounds, two assists and three steals in a pair of games last week while shooting 56 percent from the field as the Cougars locked up third place in the WNYAC. On the weekend game at Jamestown, Fobbs recorded a double-double 30-point performance and 13 rebounds to go with three assists and four steals. With his 30-point performance, Brian moved into sole possession of fourth-place all-time in Genesee career scoring with 1243 points.
