BOSTON – Jenni-Rose DiCecco of the Suffolk womens basketball team has been named the GNAC Corvias Rookie of the Week for the sixth time this season, tying the record for most awards on in a single season by a Ram.
DiCecco is now on par with Alexis Hackett as having been named the GNAC's rookie of the week more times than anyone else in Suffolk women's basketball history. The Falmouth, Massachusetts, native has also been named the best rookie over a seven day stretch by NEWBA, helping Suffolk bring home 12 weekly awards this season. Georgia Bourikas collected the top honor of USBWA National Player of the Week, along with the conference's top honor, while classmate Jordan Hipwell garnered the league's rookie of the week twice
The floor general's sixth weekly accolade comes on the heels of a 2-1 week for the Rams in which she averaged 15.3 ppg, 3.7 rpg and 4.3 apg.
After a six-point, two-assist outing at Emmanuel Tuesday night, DiCecco paved the way in scoring for Rams in a 92-57 victory over Anna Maria. Her game-high 21 points came behind four treys and a 7-for-15 showing from the field. Along with her offensive output, she notched eight assists, four boards and four steals.
At Mount Ida Saturday afternoon, DiCecco scored a game-high 19 points on a 6-for-17 performance from the floor to go along with six boards and handed out three dimes to help the Rams remain unbeaten all-time versus the Mustangs with a 65-56 road victory.
In 21 games this season, the rookie phenom is second on the squad with 14.3 ppg, leads the way with 4.0 apg and contributes 5.1 rpg.
DiCecco and the Rams return to action Tuesday, Feb. 6 when they make the trip to Saint Joseph's (Maine) for a 6:00 p.m. tip-off.
