The Big East announced Monday that DePaul freshman forward Katherine Harry and junior guard Sam Quigley were named to the conference’s Weekly Woman’s Basketball Honor Roll.
Quigley, who has appeared on the honor roll four times this season, averaged 18.0 points per game in wins against Cincinnati on January 27 and then Marquette on January 31.
Harry brought down 30 rebounds last week, including a career-high 18 against Cincinnati. She also added 13.5 points per game for the Blue Demons.
University of South Florida’s was named Big East player of the week. Quigley and Harry will hope to continue their strong play when they travel to Providence on February 3.
Softball: DePaul softball is ranked No. 20 in the nation by ESPN.com/USA Softball and No. 21 by USA Today/NFCA.
The Blue Demons, led by two-time All American and two-time Big East pitcher of the year Becca Heteniak, return eight starters from last year’s No.23 ranked squad. They are also picked to finish second behind Louisville in the Big East Conference preseason coaches poll.
Hetaniak was also chosen to the watch list for the USA Softball National Collegiate Player of the Year Award. The right-hander was 26-9 last year with a 1.38 earned-run average striking out 252 in 233.2 innings. She also hit .338 with 12 home runs and 49 RBIs. The 25 finalists for the award will be announced on April 7.
DePaul opens on February 12 at the Texas Invitational where they will take on nationally ranked (No. 13/18) LSU.
