PSU Women’s Basketball players earn Little East Weekly honors

December 17th, 2007 by Adam

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – The two leading scorers on the Plymouth State University women’s basketball team were recognized by the Little East Conference on Monday for their performances in a pair of Panther wins last week.


            Sophomore Karly Gray (Southampton, Mass./Williston Northampton) was named to the LEC Weekly Honor Roll, and freshman Amanda Kania (Manchester, N.H./West) was selected LEC Rookie of the Week. Gray is honored by the LEC for the first time this season, while Kania earned her second Rookie of the Week honor this winter.

            A 5’8” guard/forward, Gray (right) averaged 20.0 points and 5.0 rebounds in PSU’s 2-0 week, while shooting 64 percent from the field (16-of-25).  She made 10-of-14 shot attempts en route to a career-high 24 points Tuesday in a win over Lasell, and added 16 points in Saturday’s triumph over Johnson & Wales.  Gray leads the team and ranks 18th in the conference in scoring with 9.8 points per game.


            A 5’11” forward, Kania (left) averaged a double-double for the two Panther games, finishing the week with averages of 13.5 points and 12.0 rebounds.  After scoring just six points and collecting eight rebounds in Tuesday’s win over Lasell, Kania enjoyed her best game to date in Saturday’s victory over Johnson & Wales, with career-highs of 21 points and 16 rebounds.  She made 10-of-19 shots from the floor for a .526 shooting percentage.  Kania is second on the team in both scoring and rebounding (8.6 points and 5.7 rebounds per game), and is ranked 24th in the LEC in scoring and 13th in rebounding.

            PSU completed the first semester at 5-5 overall and 0-2 in the LEC.  The Panthers are taking final exams this week, and after a break for the holidays, will return to the court on Thursday, Jan. 10, at UMaine Farmington (7:00 p.m.)
