WORCESTER  With another week of college basketball in the books, it is time to unveil this week’s Worcester Area College Basketball Association (WACBA) Women’s Basketball Honor Roll, including our Player and Rookie of the Week honors.


WACBACHARRISON010318

Women’s Player of the Week: Cassidy Harrison (Becker College | Soph. | Foxborough, Mass.): Harrison continued to demonstrate her prowess at both the offensive and defensive ends of the court last week, averaging 23.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.0 steals per game and shooting 46.7 percent from behind the three-point arc. Harrison’s 28 points led the Hawks to a 60-42 victory at Southern Vermont on Tuesday in a key win for Becker’s playoff position. She later scored 19 points with seven steals at Regis in non-conference action on Saturday. For the season, Harrison ranks second in the NECC in scoring and third in three-point shooting. 


Sam Maglione WACBA ROW

Women’s Rookie of the Week: Sam Maglione (Worcester State | Fr. | Lancaster, Mass.): The freshman guard averaged 10 points and 1.5 rebounds in a 2-0 week for the Blue and Gold. She went 4-for-9 from the field and totaled 11 points in the win over Framingham State. She then posted nine points and two boards in the win over MCLA on Saturday.


WACBA Milestone: Congratulation to Worcester State women’s basketball coach Karen Tessmer, who earned her 300th win on the sidelines last Saturday with the Lancers following a 67-48 victory against MCLA.


Women’s Honor Roll

Kristina Russo (Anna Maria | Sr. | South Windsor, Conn.): In a 2-1 week for the AMCATS, Russo averaged 20 points per game – she netted 20 points in all three games – while concluding the week 20 of 57 from the field, including 14 of 39 from beyond the arc. She began the week by netting 20 points in a 79-57 win over St. Joseph’s (Conn.), while pulling down a pair of caroms. Two nights late against Suffolk, she stuffed the stat sheet with 20 points, two rebounds and one steal in a 92-57 setback. Russo concluded the week with 20 points, three rebounds, two assists and three steals in a one-point (58-57) win over Norwich.

Morgan O’Donnell (Assumption College | Jr. | Easton, Mass.): O’Donnell was solid for the Hounds last week, averaging 16.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in an 0-2 week. The junior posted 22 points and six boards in a tight 57-53 loss at Merrimack and followed it up with 11 points, two rebounds and two assists against Bentley.

Ogechi Ezemma (Clark University | Jr. | Hope Valley, R.I.): In a setback to Emerson College at home, Ezemma scored a team-high 16 points to go along with a game-high 13 rebounds to earn her fifth double-double of the season.

Angelina Marazzi (Fitchburg State |Soph. | Manchester, N.H.): Marazzi averaged 17 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.5 steals in a 1-1 week for the Falcons. She collected a team-best 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists in a 77-65 setback to Salem State on Wednesday before adding 18 points, two boards, five assists and three steals in a 96-77 victory over Pine Manor on Saturday.

Emily Carens (Worcester State | Jr. | Northborough, Mass.): The junior forward was key to the Lancers’ 73-56 win over Framingham State on Wednesday, registering a double-double of a career-high 17 points and 11 boards with three assists, two steals and a block. She then put up eight points with three steals, two assists, and a rebound in the win over MCLA. Overall, she averaged 12.5 points, going 11-for-16 (68.8%) from the field, with six rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.5 steals in a 2-0 week for the Blue and Gold.

Madison Beck (WPI | Sr. | Syracuse, N.Y.): Beck led all scorers with 18 points, on 7-of-12 shooting (58.3 percent), and added a key steal in the waning seconds as WPI collected a hard-earned 61-54 victory Saturday over visiting MIT. As a team, the Engineers secured season splits with three of the four other NEWMAC teams that are above .500 in league play and represent the top five in the standings. WPI has a chance to earn season split with league-leading Babson on Wednesday.
