BROOKLYN  Pratt Institute junior Amissa Epperson was named the Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Week, the conference announced Tuesday.

A product of Jersey City, NJ, Epperson took home top honors after recording her second career triple-double in a 60-11 victory over Cooper Union.

Against the Hawks, Epperson finished with 22 points on 10-of-19 shooting, 13 rebounds, and 10 steals. Epperson also recorded nine blocks, falling one shy of registering the program's first-ever quadruple-double.

For the season, Epperson ranks in the top-5 in the conference in scoring (17.8) and rebounds (10.8) per contest. Also, her 4.3 blocks per game rank first in the HVIAC.
