DAYTON – Men’s basketball freshman Zimi Nwokeji and women’s tennis sophomore Erica Wojcikiewicz have been named the Ohio’s College Advantage Student-Athletes of the Week for games played during the week of Feb. 15-21.

At Rhode Island, he scored 29 points (9-10 FG, 9-11 FT), which were the second-most points ever by a Dayton freshman, nearly tripling his previous career high (10 points).Wojcikiewicz, a Pittsburgh native, posted a 3-1 overall mark between singles and doubles play during a 1-1 week for the Flyers.
