(Winthrop, Mass.) It was announced earlier this afternoon that Rivier University senior Kaylee Kacavas (Dracut, Mass.) was selected as the Great Northeast Athletic Conference Women's Basketball Co-Player of the Week.
In a 1-1 week for the Raiders, Kacavas averaged 33.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.5 steals while shooting 61.1% (22-36 FG) overall, 4-of-10 from three, and a stellar 18-of-21 from the FT line. She started the week by recording a school-record 43 points on 16-of-23 shooting in the team's 78-57 win at Lesley, including three three-pointers and a perfect 8-of-8 showing from the charity stripe. The veteran guard then capped of her week by adding 23 points and seven boards in a road loss at Manhattanville.
This is the second consecutive week that a member of the Women's Basketball team has garnered a weekly honor from the conference. Freshman Cydney Lessard (Auburn, N.H.) was named the GNAC Rookie of the Week last Monday afternoon.
Kacavas and the Raiders will close out the 2018 portion of their schedule this Saturday afternoon as they host Colby College in a non-conference contest beginning at 1pm.
