Pelletier named LEC Player of the Week
PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Plymouth State College continues to reel in the Little East Conference Women's Basketball Player of the Week honor.
Panther junior Jenn Pelletier (Derry, N.H.) was selected to receive this week's top LEC honor. It is the second time this year that Pelletier has been named Player of the Week, and PSC players have received the award five of the nine weeks this season. Pelletier was also picked for the honor on Jan. 14th, and classmates Courtney Albert (Hudson, N.H.) and Heather Adey (Nashua, N.H.) have combined to win it three other times.
A 5'5" point guard, Pelletier scored a game-high 20 points and collected six rebounds in PSC's only game last week, a 62-50 conference road victory over Western Connecticut. She hit six of her 10 field goal attempts, including 2-of-4 from three-point range, while adding two assists and three steals. Pelletier accounted for nearly a third of the team's points.
A First Team All-LEC pick last season, Pelletier leads the conference in free throw percentage (.798) and three-point field goal percentage (.420), ranks third in assists (4.2 apg), and is tied for sixth in scoring (12.2 ppg).
The PSC women, 13-6 overall and tied for third in the conference at 6-4, have their hands full in Tuesday's home game against Southern Maine (5:30 p.m.). The league-leading Huskies are 20-1 overall (10-0 LEC) and ranked fifth in the country by d3hoops.com.
Tuesday's game is "Spirit Night" at Foley Gymnasium --- A full-house crowd is expected for the LEC doubleheader, with numerous games and prizes for PSC students and community members.
