Nov. 21, 2011

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.

Garrity has been named LEC Women's Basketball Rookie of the Week.

Garrity tied for the lead in scoring among Corsairs last week, averaging 15 points per game in the first three games of her collegiate career. She made 18 of 31 shots from the field for 58.1 per cent and averaged 7.7 rebounds per game. In two games at the Curry Tip-Off Tournament, Garrity scored 28 points and grabbed 16 rebounds and was named to the All-Tournament Team.

"In the first week of her college career, Kelsey really made an impact on our team," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Amanda Van Voorhis. "She had three solid games for us and is a solid addition to our backcourt. We'll look to her for a lot this year."

The Corsairs are 2-1 and will return to action when they visit Worcester State Tuesday night.
