Player of the Week

Lauren Gatto, Niagara, R-Jr., C, 6-2 Mayfield, Ohio / University of Illinois-Chicago

Gatto led the Purple Eagles in scoring and rebounds in the team's pair of games last week.  The junior registered her first double-double of the season in a two-point loss to local rival St. Bonaventure, scoring 12 points and pulling down 11 rebounds.  In the game against Bowling Green, the junior went 8-10 from the field for 16 points and added another nine rebounds to bringing her totals to 14.0 ppg and 9.0 rpg for the week.

Rookie of the Week

Sydney Coffey, Marist, Fr, G, 6-0, New Hope, Minn./Hopkins

Coffey made her first career start, in just her third collegiate game, and had a huge impact as she sparked Marist to a 56-45 victory over Princeton, which entered the game ranked fourth in the country amongst mid-major schools. On the defensive end, Coffey was in charge of covering 2012 All-American Niveen Rasheed and held her to just 3-17 shooting for the game and forced her into five turnovers. Offensively, Coffey scored 13 points for the Red Foxes while more than doubling her previous career-high with 31 minutes. She finished 4-7 from the field and a perfect 4-4 from the free throw line. Her three-pointer late in the game extended Marist's lead to eight points and essentially iced the victory.
