CINCINNATI, Ohio ? University of Cincinnati senior Bonita Wise was named Conference USA Volleyball co-Player of the Week on Monday. Wise was named to the all-tournament team of the Coors Classic after leading the Bearcats to the team title last weekend.

The Riverside, Calif. native averaged 3.60 kills, 3.60 digs and 1.20 blocks per game as the Bearcats ran their winning streak to five matches. Wise set a career-high with 21 digs in UC's win over Nevada that snapped the Wolfpack's nine-match winning streak. In the Bearcats' upset over No. 25 Colorado State, she recorded 10 kills and no errors for a .400 hitting percentage.

Wise shared the award with Memphis sophomore Heather Watts. Watts nabbed tourney MVP honors at the New England Challenge after averaging 13.30 assists and leading the Tigers to a 3-0 weekend.

The Bearcats are 7-5 on the season and won tournament titles on consecutive weekends. They open Conference USA play on Friday at rival Louisville at 7:30 p.m.
