Edison, NJ - The Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference has announced the 2010-11 Women's Basketball All-Rookie Team, as selected by the league's head coaches.

The All-Rookie Team consists of Canisius College's Jen Morabito and Jamie Ruttle, Manhattan College's Monica Roeder, Rider University's MyNeshia McKenzie, and Saint Peter's College's Aziza May. One of these five players will be named the 2010-11 Rookie of the Year, also selected by the MAAC head coaches.  The Rookie of the Year will be announced at the awards reception on Thursday, March 3 at 5:00 p.m at Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport, Conn., the site of the 2011 Spark Energy MAAC Basketball Championships.

Morabito, a 5-9 guard from Binghamton, N.Y., is second among MAAC rookies in 3-point field goals made with 43. She was also third overall in 3-point field goal percentage, connecting on 37.1% of her long range attempts. Morabito averaged 8.2 points and 2.2 rebounds per game. She was named the league's Rookie of the Week twice this season.
