Hovren Earns MBWA Weekly Honors for Third Time
Firstie forward Madison Hovren was named the player of the week by the Met Basketball Writers Association for the third time this season.
Hovren produced a pair of double-doubles in averaging 21 points and 13.5 rebounds during a 1-1 week for the Black Knights, who beat Holy Cross 60-53 at home and then lost at Lehigh 55-46.
In the game against Lehigh, she passed Erin Anthony for second all-time in career rebounds and has 1,033 boards after 15 on Saturday against the Mountain Hawks.
