Lauren O'Connor: Women's Basketball

Lauren O'Connor has been chosen Springfield College's Female Maroon Club Athlete of the Week (Jan. 7) after she was named to the Holiday Inn/Naismith Classic All-Tournament Team this past weekend.

In the Pride's two games, O'Connor averaged nine points and 15 rebounds per game while shooting 47% from the field. She was named to the All-Tournament team and had one of the more remarkable performances in Holiday Inn/Naismith Classic history.

In the consolation game against William Paterson, the junior center pulled down a tournament single game record and career-high 20 rebounds. The old record of 18 rebounds was held by Monica Gonzalez of Rutgers-Newark versus RPI on Jan. 4, 1996; by Sandy Hayn of RPI versus Rutgers-Newark in the very same game; and by Kacey Wunsch of Springfield versus Plattsburgh State on Jan. 2, 2005.

In the Pride's opening round loss to Wesleyan, O'Connor tallied eight points to go along with 10 rebounds while connecting on 4-of-8 from the field. In the consolation game, O'Connor chipped in with 10 points and her record-setting 20 rebounds.
