DAHLONEGA, Georgia – (UNGAthletics.com) – University of North Georgia women's basketball player Mimi Hill has been honored as Peach Belt Conference AstroTurf Women's Basketball Player of the Week.

Hill shot 58% from the floor in the two games (22-38) and hit 60% of her three-pointers.  Against the Lakers, she hit 11 of 17 shots from the floor, four of five three-pointers and all 10 of her free throws, shooting 94% from the line on the week. 

Hill is now second in the PBC in scoring with 21.4 ppg and she also leads the league in three-point field goal percentage and free throw percentage.

North Georgia (11-1, 5-0) returns to action on Wednesday, January 15th when the Nighthawks host #22 Georgia College in a Peach Belt Conference West Division challenge at 5:30 PM in Memorial Hall.
