BOULDER - University of Colorado basketball guards Chucky Jeffery and Sabatino Chen received CU Athlete of the Week honors on Tuesday for their athletic performances during the week of Dec. 31-Jan. 6.  CU's Athlete of the Week is sponsored by Silk®, Horizon® and International Delight®.

Jeffery, a senior from Colorado Springs, Colo., had a team-high 17 points and shot 7-of-15 on Friday night in the women's basketball team's game against the No. 4/3 ranked Stanford Cardinal.  She also led the Buffs with five rebounds and had one steal in the contest, which moved her into sole possession of sixth place on CU's all-time steals list.

On Sunday against No. 9 California, Jeffery once again led the team with 13 points while also having team highs in rebounds (8) and assists (4).  Jeffery has now registered an assist in 55 straight games and in 104 of her 106 career games.

Chen led the men's basketball team with a career-high 18 points after coming off the bench in the men's basketball team's overtime loss to No. 3 Arizona in Tucson on Thursday.

The Louisville, Colo., native also made what would have been the game-winning basket as time expired in regulation.  However after it was reviewed, it was determined that the ball had not left his hands when the clock struck 00.0, forcing the game into overtime where the Buffaloes were defeated 92-83 by the Wildcats. The only senior on the team this season, Chen also had a team-high five rebounds in the game.

This is Jeffery's second CU Athlete of the Week award of the season while its Chen's first.
