PSU Woman receives weekly basketball honor

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - One of the top players on the Plymouth State University women's basketball team was recognized Monday with selection to the Little East Conference (LEC) Weekly Honor Roll.

            Sophomore Alicia Doucet (Manchester, N.H./Central) earned her selection to the LEC Honor Roll after leading the Panthers to a runner-up finish in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) New England Tournament last week. It is the third time this season that Doucet has been recognized with weekly honors from the Little East.

            Doucet, who was an LEC All-Rookie Team selection in 2009, ranked second in the conference this season with an average of 15.6 points per game.  She was fifth in the LEC in rebounding (8.1 per game) and blocked shots (1.1 per game) and 12th in steals (1.7 per contest).  Doucet was also second on the team and 12th in the league with 26 three-point field goals.

            The Panthers completed the 2009-10 campaign with a 17-11 overall record and their second straight ECAC post-season berth under head coach Lauren Lavigne.  The Panthers tied for sixth in the Little East with a 5-9 mark.
