WATERVILLE, Maine – After averaging nine points per game over the weekend as Castleton split its road games in Maine, freshman forward Emilee Bose has been named the North Atlantic Conference Women's Basketball Rookie of the Week, announced Monday by the league office.
Last Friday, she helped keep Castleton in the game at Husson, hitting all four of her field goal attempts for eight points while also pulling down four rebounds and blocking one shot. The next day at Maine Maritime, Bose scored 10 points, including a perfect 4-for-4 performance from the free throw line, plus she grabbed three rebounds and earned one steal.
So far this season, Bose has appeared in 17 games off the bench, averaging 14.2 minutes, 7.1 points, and 4.2 rebounds per game. She has scored in double figures three times, with a season high of 16 points against Williams Jan. 2.
This is Bose's first career weekly conference honor and the second weekly award of the season for the Spartans, as Brooke Raiche was named NAC Rookie of the Week Dec. 11.
Castleton (15-3, 11-1 NAC) returns to Glenbrook Gym for a key NAC contest against the Lyndon Hornets Tuesday, Jan. 30, starting at 5:30 p.m.
