WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball squad earned two BIG EAST Conference weekly honors on Monday as freshman center Natalie Butler (Fairfax Station, Va./Lake Braddock) won the Rookie of the Week award and senior forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) was named to the weekly honor roll.

Butler maintained her spot as the league's top rebounder following a pair of double-doubles last week. Against Creighton on Wednesday, Butler scored 24 points and grabbed 13 rebounds before scoring 12 points and corralling 12 boards against Marquette on Saturday. For the week, the freshman averaged 18 points, 12.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocked shots.

For the season, Butler is the top scoring freshman at 15.1 points per game and leads all BIG EAST players with a 12.7 rebounding average. She is sixth in the nation in rebounding average, as well as the top freshman in the country, and ranks eighth overall including first among freshmen in national double-doubles with 10 on the season.

This is her fifth Rookie of the Week award this season and sixth honor overall.

White tallied a double-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds against Marquette on Saturday en route to averaging 17.5 points, 8.5 rebounds for the week. She is currently second on the squad in scoring with 14.6 ppg as well as 8.9 rpg.

This is second nod to the honor roll this season and third award this year overall. White has earned three spots on the honor roll in her career.

Georgetown has won six BIG EAST awards so far this year and also had four nods to the honor roll.

The Hoyas will have a quick turnaround after Saturday's game traveling to Cincinnati, Ohio to face Xavier University on Wednesday at 7 p.m. Live stats will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
