Morrison Named Little East Rookie of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, Mass. – Freshman center Kirsten Morrison (North Reading, Mass.) earned her first Little East Conference Rookie of the Week honor for women's basketball, after her standout performance in last week's non-conference game against Fitchburg State University as announced by the conference office.

In the Beacons lone game of the week, Morrison came off the bench and put together one of her best performances to date, as she recorded her first collegiate double-double.  Against the Falcons of Fitchburg State, Morrison pulled down 13 boards, while also putting up 16 points in 28 minutes of action.  From the field, Morrison was 6-for-16, while at the line she was 4-for-5.  Defensively, the freshman totaled two blocks and one steal in the contest.

Women's basketball returns to the hardwood on Thursday when they travel to Wheelock College for a 7 p.m. non-conference game.
