Sanders Earns Third NECC Player of the Week Honor

MARSHFIELD, Mass. - Nighthawks sophomore Jaymesha Sanders (West Haven, Conn.) had one of her best weekly performances of the season, leading to her being named the New England Collegiate Conference Player of the Week, for the week ending on February 10.

In three NECC games this week, the Nighthawks finished 2-1. The highlight of the week for Sanders was her 38-point performance in a 79-60 victory over Elms. In what may have been the last home game in program history, Sanders broke the program record for points in a game, going 16-for-26 from the floor to rack up her 38 points.

On the week, Sanders posted three consecutive double-doubles, averaging 24.3 points, 13.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game.

Newbury finishes the regular season with a pair of games in conference this week, starting on Wednesday with a 5:00 p.m. tip at Dean, followed by the regular-season finale at Eastern Nazarene College on Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
