Driscoll Named As Little East Women's Basketball Rookie Of The Week

UMass Dartmouth freshman guard Jennifer Driscoll was named as the Little East Conference Women’s Basketball Rookie of the Week on Monday afternoon for her performance in last Tuesday evening’s 84-55 victory at Roger Williams.

A native of Westport, Mass. and a graduate of St. George’s School, Driscoll scored a career-high 18 points on a 6-of-7 shooting performance from the field for the Corsairs, as she connected on both of her three-point attempts and canned all four shots at the foul line.  Jennifer added a rebound, assist, steal and block as well on the night, as she helped UMass Dartmouth extend its winning streak to four straight.

Driscoll becomes the third Corsair to earn a Little East weekly award in the early going, as senior guard Ashley Brown (New Bedford, Mass./Fairhaven) claimed the first two conference Player of the Week accolades and earned a spot on the D3hoops.com National Team of the Week on November 19th.  Sophomore forward Shaelyn Carreiro (Fall River, Mass./Durfee) was tabbed as the Little East Player of the Week last Tuesday afternoon.

Head Coach Matt Ducharme’s squad, which is 6-1 overall and 1-0 in Little East play, conclude a four-game road trip on Wednesday evening by heading to Providence, R.I. to take on Rhode Island College in a conference clash that tips-off at 5:30 pm EST.
