First LEC Honor for Adey

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - A reserve forward on the Plymouth State College women's basketball team has been recognized by the Little East Conference for her solid efforts in two Panther victories last week.

Sophomore Heather Adey (Nashua, N.H.) was selected to this week's LEC Honor Roll after helping the Panthers to LEC victories over Keene State and UMass Boston. It is the first time in her career that Adey has been recognized by the LEC.

A 5'10" forward, Adey came off the bench to average 10.5 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Panthers, while adding three assists, three steals and a blocked shot. She connected on 69.2 percent from the field (9-of-13), hitting all five field goal attempts against Keene State and 4-of-8 at UMass Boston. For the season, Adey is averaging 6.1 points and 4.3 rebounds a contest, while shooting 53.5 percent from the floor. She has played in all 21 contests, starting six.

The Panthers have won five consecutive games, matching their longest winning streak since opening the 1999-2000 campaign with five in a row. PSC has also captured 15 straight encounters at home, including all nine contests this season.

PSC is now 15-6 overall and 8-4 in conference action, maintaining third place in the LEC with two league games remaining. The Panthers host conference-leading Southern Maine Tuesday (Feb. 13) in the final regular season home game (5:30 p.m.). Then it's a non-conference affair Thursday (Feb. 15) at Eastern Nazarene (6:00 p.m.) before traveling to UMass Dartmouth Saturday (Feb. 17) for the regular season finale.

Plymouth State needs one victory in its final two conference games to clinch home-court advantage in the opening round of the LEC Tournament, which begins next Tuesday (Feb. 20).
