ECAC recognition of PSC Women's Hoop player

PLYMOUTH, N.H. -

A member of the Plymouth State College women's basketball team was honored for her outstanding play in a Panther game last week.

PSC sophomore Krystyna Zagorski (Matawan, NJ) was named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference New England Weekly Honor Roll for games ending Jan. 10. She was instrumental in the Panthers picking up their first Little East Conference victory of the season.

A 5'11" forward/center, Zagorski scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds Saturday in a 72-56 triumph over UMass Dartmouth. She hit five of eight shots from the field and canned all six free throw attempts while adding a pair of assists, one blocked shot and one steal.

After a standout freshman campaign, Zagorski has continued her solid play this season. She leads the Panthers in field goal percentage (.514) and free throw percentage (.828), and ranks second on the team in scoring (11.3 ppg) and rebounding (7.6 rpg).

The Panthers, 5-4 overall and 1-2 in LEC games under first-year coach Lauren Lavigne, play three games this week. PSC has LEC road games Tuesday (Jan. 12) at UMass Boston (5:30 p.m.) and Saturday (Jan. 16) at Eastern Connecticut (3:00 p.m.), sandwiched around a non-conference home game Thursday (Jan. 14) at Foley Gymnasium vs. Bowdoin (5:30 p.m.).
