The Binghamton University women's basketball team has swept the America East Conference's weekly awards for the second time this season.

Junior forward Viive Rebane earned her first conference player of the week honors while freshman Jasbrielle Swain was named Rookie of the Week for the third time this year.

Rebane scored 18 points and had 9 rebounds in a win against Mount St. Marys on Saturday.

Swain chipped in 12 points and 6 rebounds in that game.

She is on pace to post the highest scoring average by a freshman in Binghamton's division 1 history.

This is the first time the Bearcats have swept the weekly honors twice in a season since joining the America East in 2001.

They also did it the week of November 22nd.

The Bearcats are back in action on December 29th at the Monmouth tournament.
