MARSHFIELD, Mass. - Nighthawks sophomore Jaymesha Sanders (West Haven, Conn.) has been named the New England Collegiate Conference Player of the Week, for the week ending on Nov. 18, as announced by the NECC Office on Monday morning.

Sanders and the Nighthawks played one game this week, a 58-45 victory at UMaine Farmington on Saturday afternoon. Sanders scored 26 points and added 13 rebounds in the win for her first double-double this season. She shot 9-for-17 from the floor, including 4-for-6 from three-point range. The four made shots from distance are a new career-high.

The Nighthawks look for their third straight win on Tuesday as they open the NECC schedule, hosting Eastern Nazarene for a 5:00 p.m. tip at Pappas Gymnasium.
