Vanderbilt’s backcourt duo of Christina Foggie and Kady Schrann swept the Southeastern Conference’s weekly awards, the league announced Monday.

Foggie, who scored a career-high 34 points against Georgia on Thursday, was named the SEC’s player of the week. Schrann, one day after scoring a career-high 29 points against LSU on Sunday, was named the league’s freshman of the week.

Against Georgia, Foggie, a 5-foot-9 sophomore guard, tied for the 12th most points in a single game in school history. It was the most points by a Vanderbilt player in more than eight years. She also set a career-high with seven 3-pointers, which is tied for the third-most in program history. Foggie, a native of Mount Laurel, N.J., scored 14 points — all in the second half — against LSU.

Schrann’s performance against LSU surpassed her previous career-high by nine points. The 5-foot-4 guard from York, Pa., was averaging just 4.2 points in SEC games. Against the Tigers, she scored 17 points after halftime and was 11-of-15 from the field. That capped off a week in which she averaged 17.5 points and four assists. She set a personal-best with six assists against Georgia.

It marked the first time since the inception of the freshman of the week award during the 2006-07 season that Vanderbilt has swept the weekly awards.

The Commodores (16-5, 4-4 SEC) take a two-game winning streak into Thursday’s contest at Auburn.
