Queens College freshman MacKenzie Rowland (Shaker, N.Y./Cohoes) was named East Coast Conference Rookie of the Week, it was announced by the league office Monday. This is the second such award for the talented freshman basketball player.
The Knights improved to 3-2 and earned their first conference win of the season with an 82-43 victory over Mercy Saturday from Fitzgerald Gym. The game, which was the only one of the week for QC, saw them improve to 3-0 at home this season.
In the win, Rowland was a perfect nine-for-nine from the field as she scored a season-high 19 points and pulled down 14 rebounds. She added a pair of blocked shots and threw in an assist and a steal. Rowland was one of four Knights to reach double figures in scoring in the win.
The Knights’ forward picks up her second award after she was feted for her stellar play Nov. 11. Rowland has reached double figures in scoring in three contests this season.
Rowland and the Queens College women’s basketball team return to the hardwood Saturday when they have their first conference road game at NYIT. The tip-off is scheduled for 2 p.m.
