COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College women's basketball senior Nicole Adach (Schenectady, N.Y./Mohonasen) was named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, Feb. 24. This week marks Adach's 10th time earning the award this year.
Adach averaged 14.0 points - while shooting 52.9 percent (9-for-17) from the floor - to go along with 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal in a pair of games last week. She scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting that included 2-for-3 from three-point range against Merrimack College on Wednesday, also recording eight rebounds, two assists and a steal. At Saint Anselm College on Saturday, Adach posted 10 points, hitting 6-of-6 from the free throw stripe, to reach 1,036 career points and pass Jevy Rayner '07 (1,032 points) to move into 17th in program history. She added five rebounds, two assists and a steal in the contest.
Adach ranks fourth in the league in free throw shooting (82.8), fifth in scoring (15.3) and free throws (96), and seventh in field goal shooting (50.6). Along with leading the team in each of those categories, Adach is first in offensive rebounding (2.6), tied for first in blocks (14), and second in rebounding (6.2) and steals (39). She is also 23-for-50 from three-point range, for a 46.0 percent success rate. With one game left, Adach is 17 points short of becoming the 12th Purple Knight with 400 in a season, and four free throws shy of being the fourth player in school annals with multiple 100-free throw seasons.
Saint Michael's, which stands 10-15 overall and 8-13 in the NE-10, plays its season finale tomorrow when it travels to Southern New Hampshire University for a 5:30 p.m. game.
