Jan. 30, 2012

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA-Freshman guard Kelsey Garrity (Somerville, MA/Somerville HS) of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth women's basketball team has been honored by the Little East Conference.

For the third time this season, Garrity has been named LEC Women's Basketball Rookie of the Week.

Garrity averaged 11 points and 8 rebounds in three games last week as UMass Dartmouth went 3-0. She scored a career-high 23 points and added 10 rebounds against Salem State for a double double, and had nine rebounds and seven assists in Saturday's win at Plymouth State.

"Kelsey's play propelled us to a 3-0 week," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Amanda Van Voorhis. "She's continuing to improve and has been a bright spot for us in the backcourt. Kelsey is extremely coachable, and clearly driven to help our team achieve our goals this season."

The Corsairs are 12-7 and 4-5 in the Little East Conference and will return to action when they host Mount Ida Wednesday night.
