SOMERSET, NJ – Junior guard Erin Storck reignited her scoring finesse in a crucial 2-0 week for Sacred Heart University women's basketball and was named the Northeast Conference Player of the Week as announced by the league office Wednesday afternoon.
The Long Island product reached new heights to steer the Pioneers to their 19th consecutive NEC Tournament berth. She gunned a career-high five treys to avenge an earlier season loss to St. Francis Brooklyn, eclipsed the 20-point plateau for the first time since the Pioneers took down Providence in December and spearheaded the SHU offense in five of the team's six most recent outings.
Storck's 21-point production against the Terriers came on 45-percent shooting including a 37.5-percent clip from downtown. She hauled five boards, lent two assists and mirrored personal-bests in blocks (3) and steals (3) in 39 minutes.
The veteran followed that up versus LIU Brooklyn netting all five of her tries from far going 5-of-8 from three but 41.7-percent from the floor. She dished three dimes, cleaned the glass twice and picked up a theft. The junior was a perfect free-throw shooter (2-of-2).
The award comes as the second for Storck this season and career. The guard was first honored by the league on December 11.
Women's hoops close its regular season Sunday, March 2 against Fairleigh Dickinson at the Pitt Center. The contest will serve as Senior Day.
