Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana - Youngstown State freshman point guard Shar'Rae Davis has been named the Horizon League Newcomer of the Week for her efforts in helping lead the Penguins to a 64-50 victory at Pittsburgh, the conference office announced on Monday. 

Davis, a native of Grand Haven, Mich., finished with nine assists, nine rebounds and four assists in her collegiate debut on Friday. In 37 minutes, she added two steals and a block as the Penguins picked up their first win over a current Big East time since 1991 and their first over a team in the BCS since 1997. Davis helped seal the win by going 4-for-4 from the free-throw line in the final 1:09. Her nine assists were the most by a Penguin in three seasons. 

Davis is the inaugural winner of the Horizon League Newcomer-of-the-Week award. 

Additionally, senior forward Brandi Brown was named the Madness Horizon League Player of the Week by CollegeSportsMadness.com. Brown scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds against Pitt. She was edged by Valparaiso's Shaquira Scott for the conference office's award. 

The Penguins will play at Buffalo on Tuesday at noon.
