Martin Earns Spot On NEWBA Weekly Honor Roll

Martin Earns Spot On NEWBA Weekly Honor Roll

Mount Ida sophomore forward Valerie Martin was one of six players named to this week’s New England Women’s Basketball Association Honor Roll for her efforts in a pair of Mustang victories last week.

 

A native of Derry, N.H. and a graduate of Pinkerton Academy, Martin averaged 23 points, 12 rebounds, four steals and 3.5 assists on the week, including a career-high 28 points, 15 boards, four assists and a school-record tying 13-of-13 effort from the foul line in a 94-80 triumph over Fitchburg State.  Valerie added 18 points, nine caroms and six steals in a 78-54 win over Mount Holyoke, and she shot 62 percent (16-26) from the field in the two outings.

 

Martin leads Mount Ida in scoring (16.8 ppg), rebounding (9.3 rpg) and steals (4.0 spg) and is shooting 87 percent (47-54) at the charity stripe after the first semester of play, as she has helped lead third year Head Coach Katie Greene’s squad to the best start (6-2) in the program’s 19-year NCAA varsity history.

 

The Mustangs resume play on Tuesday, January 2nd with a non-league contest at Becker that tips-off at 7:00 pm EST.
