YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference announced its weekly women's basketball award winners on Monday and Salisbury University senior Lauren Rothfeld was honored for the first time in her career as the league's Player of the Week.
Rothfeld paced Salisbury in a pair of CAC wins last week, scoring 33 points in a pair of blowout wins against St. Mary's College of Maryland and Penn State University-Harrisburg.
The Dresher, Pennsylvania native did most of her damage against the Seahawks from the free throw line, hitting 7-of-8 tries from the charity stripe, scoring 17 points while garnering seven steals.
Rothfeld kept her strong play going against the Lions, coming up with seven more steals, and scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the floor.
Rothfeld leads the CAC in steals per game, with 4.8 per game which is more than a steal clear of the second-highest average. She's also third in the conference in scoring, averaging 15.2 points per game.
Salisbury returns to the court on Saturday, December 10 for a 1 p.m., contest at Southern Virginia University.
