PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The point guard on the Plymouth State College women's basketball team was named to the Little East Conference Weekly Honor Roll Monday, the third different Panther to be recognized by the LEC this season.
Senior Jenn Pelletier (Derry, N.H.) was honored by the LEC, joining previous Panther recipients and classmates Courtney Albert (Hudson, N.H.) and Whitney Morin (Derby Line, Vt.). Pelletier led PSC to a victory over Coast Guard, and in the process recorded her 1000th career point.
A 5'4" guard, Pelletier tossed in a team-high 19 points in last Tuesday's win over Coast Guard. Her three-pointer late in the game also pushed her over the 1000-point milestone, becoming the eighth Panther woman to hit the century mark. She added 14 points, six rebounds and seven assists in a tough loss to nationally-ranked Eastern Connecticut, finishing the week with averages of 16.5 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals. Pelletier had 10 assists and only four turnovers in 70 minutes of action.
For the season, Pelletier is among the conference leaders in scoring (11.9 ppg), assists (5.3 apg), steals (2.9 spg) and three-point field goal percentage (.343).
There are also several other Panthers who are among the LEC statistical leaders. Morin leads the league in scoring (19.3 ppg) and also ranks highly in assists (5.4), steals (3.7), and three-point FG percentage (.390). Albert and senior Heather Adey (Nashua, N.H.) are both among the leaders in scoring, rebounding and field goal percentage, and sophomore Betsy Oswalt (Jaffrey, N.H.) appears on the list for free throw percentage and steals.
After a break for final exams and the holidays, the Panthers are back in action on Tuesday, Dec. 31, with a non-conference game at Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, Fla. (1:30 p.m.).
