    LOS ANGELES - USC basketball guard Katin Reinhardt and women's tennis player Zoë Scandalis were named USC Credit Union Student-Athletes of the Week for the week of Jan. 26 - Feb. 1, on Monday, Feb. 2.

    Katin Reinhardt showcased his talent against Colorado by surpassing personal records and tying a school record in the triple overtime thriller. The redshirt sophomore lit up the Galen Center by going 9/18 from downtown, scoring a career-high 35 points.

    In double overtime, Reinhardt drained his ninth 3-pointer of the night from beyond the arc to extend the Trojans lead to 81-76. However, the Buffaloes would make a last minute surge to force triple overtime where they would eventually win 94-98 in dramatic fashion. With nine 3-pointers, Reinhardt tied Anthony Pendleton for the school single-game 3-point record. USC is next scheduled to travel up north to Berkeley, Calif. to face California on Feb. 5, at 8:00pm PT.

    Also nominated for men's student-athlete of the week honors: Alex Slaught (volleyball) and Roberto Quiroz (tennis).

    Zoë Scandalis's late-game heroics proved to be the deciding factor in the Trojans 4-3 win over No. 30 Pepperdine. With the Women of Troy tied in a tough battle at 3-3, it all came down to Scandalis. At singles, the senior won her first set 6-1, but then lost her second set 5-7. In the crucial third set, Scandalis found herself in a 2-5 deficit. Facing the possibility of defeat, Scandalis rallied to force a tiebreaker where she would ultimately come out victorious, clinching the Trojans dual-match victory over Pepperdine.

    Scandalis and Giuliana Olmos also contributed to the crucial doubles-point earned by the Trojans with a 6-4 win over Guillermo and Runglerkriangkrai of Pepperdine. USC is next set to compete in the ITA National Team Indoor Championships on Feb. 6, in Charlottesville, Va.

    Also nominated for women's student-athlete of the week honors: Haley Ishimatsu (swimming and diving).

    The USC Credit Union Student-Athletes of the Week are voted on by the student assistants and Sports Information Directors of the USC Sports Information Office. Nominations are compiled and distributed for voting by Alec Koondel. Student assistant voters include Rachel Dobrin, Robby Kolanz, Dru Chavez, Colette Garcia, Melissa Martino, Andrew McKagan, Max Schwartz and intern Katie Ryan.
