REEVES HONORED: Southern Oregon senior guard Majerle Reeves was voted the Cascade Conference's women's basketball player of the week Monday after lighting up the Midland Empire Classic and leading the second-ranked Raiders to a pair of wins in Klamath Falls.
Reeves, a product of Longview, Washington, shot 5-for-9 from 3-point range with 16 points Friday in SOU's 77-63 defeat of Simpson. In Saturday's 86-45 win against Cal Maritime, she scored a career-high 20 points and contributed to SOU's school-record total of 16 3-pointers with a 6-for-10 effort.
Through four games, Reeves is averaging 13.3 points off the bench and shooting 48.5 percent (16-for-33) from beyond the arc.
The Raiders (3-1 overall) are off until Dec. 1, when they'll travel to Angwin, Calif., to take on Pacific Union.
