NOTES:

- Barnes PE Center has been a house of horrors for teams throughout the year as Covenant teams are a combined 17-1 on the court this season. Volleyball went 11-0 on the floor, while men's basketball is currently 3-0 and women's hoops 3-1.

- Men's basketball senior Patjo Twagirayezu registered his second 30-plus point effort of the season in Saturday's 93-64 win over Berea with 30 points. The senior scored a career-high 32 points in a win over Birmingham Southern on Nov. 21. Twagirayezu is the first Covenant player to have multiple 30-point scoring games in a season since Jacob Skogen had five such performances in 2006-07.

- Women's basketball junior Joanna Smith averaged a double-double on the week and recorded two double-doubles in Covenant's three games. Smith now has 17 double-doubles in her career.
