Emily Parker Takes Home Fourth Patriot League Rookie Of The Week Award

WORCESTER, Mass. Holy Cross freshman forward Emily Parker (Johnston, Iowa) has been named the Anaconda Patriot League Rookie of the Week for her 15-point, eight-rebound performance against Lehigh last week. She now has four Rookie of the Week honors under her belt, also taking home last week's honor.

Parker scored 15 points and tied the team-high with eight rebounds in the 75-73 loss against Lehigh this past Saturday. She went 6-for-15 from the field and played a season-high 31 minutes of action. Her 15 field goal attempts were a season-high as she also went 3-of-4 from the free throw line.

Parker became the third player on the Holy Cross roster to average double-figures after last week's performance as she now posts 10.0 points per game. She has recorded seven 10+ point affairs in seven of the last eight games. Her rebounding average, 5.8, ranks second on the team as well.

Holy Cross hosts Navy in a crucial mid-week match-up on Wednesday, Feb. 8. Tip time is set for 7:00 p.m. at the Hart Center in Worcester, Mass. The Crusaders are 7-3 at home so far this season.
