Phil Beans (Holy Cross) – The senior center has been clutch for the Crusaders thus far and against the University of Maine, Beans totaled 19 points (career-high), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal. His eight rebounds was his second-highest total of his collegiate career.
Ronson Quick (Assumption College) – Quick was clearly a factor this past week for the Hounds, who’re currently 3-0 and 1-0 in the Northeast-10 Conference. The junior averaged 16.7 points per game and 5.3 rebounds in three games, and against Caldwell, he scored 20 points (8-of-13 shooting) and pulled down three rebounds.
Katy Howard (Assumption College) – Through three games this season, Howard is averaging 14.7 points per game. In her team’s first game of the season against American International, Howard recorded 17 points, five steals, and two assists. This past weekend, the Medway native was named to the Stonehill College Tip-Off Tournament Team after leading her squad to back-to-back victories.
Kayla Cummings (Anna Maria) – Against Newbury College at the Gordon Invitational, the junior led all players with 14 points and 12 rebounds in her team’s 50-46 setback.
Brad Peterson (Anna Maria) – In two games this season, Peterson has averaged 25.5 points per game and 11.5 rebounds. Against Daniel Webster last Friday, Peterson led all scorers with 31 points. He also chipped in 16 rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one steal. Peterson was named to the All-Tournament Team, too.
Lee Brocket (Becker College) – In his team’s second game of the season against Plymouth State, the sophomore led all scorers with 33 points. Brocket also concluded the game with six three-pointers, seven free throws, eight rebounds, and two steals.
Emily Reilly (Clark University) – After two games, the junior from Marlborough is averaging 18 points per game and 7.5 rebounds. Reilly, who was named the Worcester City Tournament’s MVP, paced the Cougars with 24 points and eight rebounds in her team’s Worcester City Tournament championship against WPI. Clark has now won the tournament 20 times.
Brian Vayda (Clark University) – After missing 20 games last season with an injury, the graduate student from Sturbridge provided the necessary spark for the Cougars, who captured the Eastern Connecticut State Tip-Off Tournament crown this past weekend. Vayda recorded his team’s final 10 points in the championship game against Bowdoin College, as well as the game-winning three-pointer with four seconds remaining, which provided Clark with their second win of the season.
Dane Jobst (Worcester State) – After two games, the junior from Athol is averaging 23.5 points per game, seven rebounds and 2.5 steals. Jobst earned all-tournament honors last weekend at the UMass Dartmouth Hampton Inn Classic following two impressive performances against Trinity College and Wheaton College. Against the Bantams, he recorded 29 points and nine rebounds, and against the Lyons he finished with 18 points, five rebounds and four steals.
Meaghan O’Keefe (Worcester State) – The senior from Warren was clutch for the Lancers, especially against Becker College in the Worcester City Tournament’s consolation game where she tallied 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists and one block. O’Keefe earned all-tournament honors, too.
Dani Davis (WPI) – Through two games this season, the sophomore is averaging 15.5 points per game and 7.5 rebounds. In the Worcester City Tournament’s championship, Davis registered a career-best 18 points, including four three-pointers and nine rebounds in her team’s first loss to Clark.
