BOSTON –Mackenzie Trpcic has been named America East Women’s Basketball Player of the Week, the conference offices announced Monday. It is Trpcic’s first career weekly award, which she shares with this week’s Rookie, India Pagan from Stony Brook.
In the Great Danes' only game last week, Sunday against St. Bonaventure at SEFCU Arena, Trpcic scored a career-high 21 points, including eight of UAlbany’s first 12 in the first quarter. Trpcic also dished nine assists, the fifth time in 10 games this season she has recorded eight or more assists in a single game. Finally, Trpcic matched her career-high with five rebounds.
Previously this season, UAlbany has had two players, Kyara Frames and Patricia Conroy, named as America East Rookie of the Week. Trpcic is UAlbany’s first Player of the Week this season.
The Great Danes arrived in San Juan on Monday for the Puerto Rico Classic, during which they will play games on Tuesday against Southern Illinois and Thursday against Northern Illinois. Once returning home, the team will have one more game in 2017, on December 30 against Dartmouth at SEFCU Arena. The America East schedule begins on January 3 at Hartford.
