Mansfield, Mass. – For the sixth time in her career, Dean College sophomore sensation Makayla Rudder (Springfield, Mass.) has received a weekly award from the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC).
After a near triple-double performance in the Bulldogs' season-opening setback to Westfield State, Rudder was named the NECC women's basketball Player of the Week.
The second year standout poured in a game-high 23 points, to go along with ten rebounds and a career-best eight assists while playing all 40 minutes.
Her performance against the Owls marked the 11th time in her 27 game career that she topped the 20 point plateau.
Rudder and the Bulldogs return to action on Tuesday when they travel to Colby-Sawyer for a non-league matchup with the Chargers slated for 7:00 PM.
