Two PSU Women’s Basketball players honored by the Little East Conference

March 4th, 2008 by Adam

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two standouts on the Plymouth State University women’s basketball team were recognized Tuesday with season-ending honors from the Little East Conference.


            Senior Lauren Daniels (Concord, N.H.) was named to the five-player LEC All-Defensive Team, and freshman Amanda Kania (Manchester, N.H./West) was selected to the five-player LEC All-Rookie Team.  Daniels and Kania were key players on a Panther team that showed a five-game improvement over last season.

            A 5’9 forward, Daniels (right) started all 26 games for the Panthers, averaging 6.8 points and 8.8 rebounds.  Her rebounding average led the team and ranks second in the LEC, and is the highest average for a PSU player since 1998-99, when Rebecca Morse collected 8.8 boards a game.  Daniels posted 12 double-digit rebounding efforts this season, including the last four games of the year.


            A 5’11 forward, Kania (left) turned in an outstanding freshman campaign for the Panthers, averaging 9.2 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.  She led the team in scoring six times this season, and was named LEC Rookie of the Week on three occasions. Kania ranked 16th in the conference in scoring, 18th in rebounding, and eighth in blocked shots (18).

            The Panthers finished the campaign with an 11-15 overall record and a 4-10 conference mark under 10th-year head coach Lauren Lavigne.
