Dillard and Perkins named UB's Athletes of the Week

UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO ATHLETICS


Cierra Dillard and Nick Perkins were named UB's Athletes of the week. 
          
Junior Cierra Dillard had another strong week for the Bulls as she helped UB earn a 1-1 record while leading the way in scoring in both games. Dillard finished off her week averaging a team-best 20.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting 48.5% from the floor and draining a team-high seven three pointers. In the Bulls win over Western Michigan on Wednesday, Dillard was dynamic especially in the second half as she netted a game-high 23 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals while going 9-for-13 from the floor and 3-for-4 from behind the arc. The junior had personal runs of 7-0 and 10-2 in the second half to lift UB to victory. Dillard is now up to 965 career points as she looks to join the 1,000 point club during her junior campaign.
              
Junior Nick Perkins averaged a double-double to start conference play as he helped lead the Bulls to a pair of wins, the only MAC East team to win both games during the opening week.  The reigning MAC Sixth Man of the Year, averaged 19.5 points and 10.5 rebounds off the bench, doing a lot of work from the free throw line where he was 19-of-23. Perkins began the week as he finished with 24 points and 10 rebounds in a home win over Toledo, as he was 12-of-13 from the free throw line.  He followed it up on Saturday with 15 points and a season-high 11 rebounds in a dominating 83-63 road victory at Ball State. Perkins is averaging 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this year.
