Jan. 22, 2007

WORCESTER, Mass. - Freshman Briana McFadden (Wheaton, Md.) has been named Patriot League Baden Rookie of the Week for her performances against Navy, Dartmouth and American last week. This is the third time this season that McFadden has been recognized with this award.

McFadden averaged 10.0 points per outing over three games for the Crusaders last week. Against American, the rookie guard netted a career-high 17 points, going 3-for-6 from long range and 4-for-4 from the charity stripe. On the week she shot 46.7% from beyond the arc, sinking seven 3-pointers. In a win over Navy last Tuesday, she matched her career-high with four steals.

The Crusaders (1-4 in the league and 6-14 overall) will travel to play Colgate Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
