VESTAL, N.Y.-- Freshman point
Holmes has been named the America East Conference Women's
Basketball Rookie of the Week. It marks the first time in her
career that she has earned a weekly honor.
Holmes averaged 20 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in two
games this past week. She poured in a career-high 32 points in
Binghamton's 91-86 win over Stony Brook on Sunday.
The 32 points by Holmes represents the first time a Binghamton
player has reached the 30-point mark since Sarah Cartmill scored
35 points against Hartford on Feb. 17, 2002. It is also the 12th-highest, single-game
total in program history and the second-highest performance at
the Division I level, trailing only Cartmill's 35-point effort.
"Andrea continues to grow into a great player," head
coach Nicole Scholl said. "She does so many things well.
She did that very well this week."
Holmes ranks second on the
squad with 9.1 points per game and is first with 3.2 assists
