NEWBA honors for Albert and Fournier
PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Two members of the Plymouth State College women's basketball team have been honored for their performances this season by the New England Women's Basketball Association (NEWBA).
Junior Courtney Albert (Hudson, N.H.) was named to the NEWBA All-New England First Team, and senior Megan Fournier (East Waterboro, Maine) was chosen to represent Plymouth State in the 2002 NEWBA Senior All-Star Classic this weekend.
Albert, a two-time All-Little East Conference First Team pick, earned her second selection to the NEWBA All-Star team (she was a Second Team choice last season). Fournier is one of six LEC seniors who will play in the All-Star Classic this Sunday (Mar. 10) at 1:00 p.m. at Brandeis University.
A 5'9" forward, Albert ranked second in the Little East in scoring (16.1 ppg), field goal percentage (.500) and free throw percentage (.810) and ninth in rebounding (7.3 rpg). She led PSC in scoring 15 times this season, including a 24-point, 11-rebound effort in the championship game of the ECAC New England Tournament.
A 5'8" guard-forward, Fournier averaged seven points a game and was the top defender on the team. She is a four-year starter and ranks third in the conference this season in steals (3.0 spg). Fournier finishes her career with 756 points, tied for 18th on the school's all-time scoring list, and she helped the team to a combined record of 75-36.
The Panthers finished this season with a 21-8 overall record, matching the school record for wins in a season. PSC captured its first post-season title by winning the ECAC New England Championship.
