Player Of The Week: Britny Edwards

ECU senior center Britny Edwards averages 9.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game for the 21-7 Pirates, but what you may not know is that one of East Carolina's best players is legally deaf.

Britny Edwards has been wearing hearing aids since the age of 3 and with the help of family and her fraternal sister Whitny, who also plays basketball at ECU, she has been able to succeed at college basketball's highest level.

Sports director Billy Weaver has more on WITN's newest Pepsi Player Of The Week.
