LEC Honors for Oglesby and Adey

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The Little East Conference recognized two members of the Plymouth State College basketball teams Monday for their strong performances on the court last week.

Sophomore Anthony Oglesby (Brooklyn, N.Y.) was named LEC Men's Basketball Co-Player of the Week, and senior Heather Adey (Nashua, N.H.) was a selection on the LEC Women's Weekly Honor Roll. It is the first LEC honor for Oglesby and the first this season for Adey, as she becomes the fourth senior on the women's team to be honored.

She shot 59.4 percent from the field (19-of-32) while adding eight assists and six steals. Adey had a double-double (14 points, 13 rebounds) in an LEC win over UMass Boston, and she finished with a season-high 21 points in a solid non-conference win over Saint Joseph's.
