COLUMBIA, S.C. — Senior Ana Marija Zubori from the South Carolina women’s tennis team picked up Southeastern Conference Player of the Week honors Wednesday.

Zubori posted an undefeated record at No. 1 singles and No. 1 doubles last week in helping the 19th-ranked Gamecocks down Illinois, Ole Miss and Mississippi State. South Carolina currently sits at 12-4 overall following last week’s victories and is 5-1 in the SEC.

Zubori began the week by clinching South Carolina’s 4-3 victory over Illinois as the last match on court with a straight-set victory against Megan Fudge. She then followed up by teaming with Dijana Stojic to topple the then-No. 12 doubles team in the country of Kristi Boxx and Karen Nijssen of Ole Miss and then beat Boxx in straight set in helping South Carolina to another 4-3 decision. Against Mississippi State, Zubori and Stojic won 8-4 and Zubori won in straight sets again to finish her impressive week.

With six victories between singles and doubles, Zubori moved up into third place on the school’s all-time list for combined singles and doubles wins with 185. She also took possession of second for career singles wins with 105 and moved to fifth in doubles triumphs with 80.

The Gamecocks return to action Friday hosting Kentucky at 2 p.m. and then No. 24 Vanderbilt on Sunday at 1 p.m.
