Moriarty is LEC Women's Basketball Player of the Week

NORTH DARTMOUTH, MA – Senior forward Colleen Moriarty (Canton, MA/Canton HS) has been honored by the Little East Conference.

Moriarty has been named LEC Women's Basketball Player of the Week. It's the fourth time she has been so honored.

Moriarty averaged 19.3 points and seven rebounds per game last week as the Corsairs went 2-1. She scored 21 points against Eastern Connecticut State, and 19 points against both UMass Boston and Southern Maine. She made 23 of 46 shots from the field for 50 per cent and 13 of 17 free throws for 76.5 per cent while adding nine assists, seven blocked shots and four steals.  

"Colleen had been our go-to player down the stretch," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach Amanda Van Voorhis. "She has a better understanding of how to get open, she has a good knack around the basket, and her touch has been incredible."

The Corsairs will return to action when they host UMass Boston in a playoff game in the first round of the Little East Conference Tournament Tuesday evening.
