EDISON, NJ - For the second time this season, the Iona College women's basketball team swept the weekly MAAC honors, as announced Monday afternoon. Sophomore guard Damika Martinez was named Player of the Week while freshman forward Joy Adams claimed her fifth Rookie of the Week honor.
Martinez posted a team high 18 points, along with three steals, two blocks and four rebounds in the Gaels' contest at Stony Brook this weekend. She scored 12 of her 18 points in the second half of the close contest, and finished a perfect six-for-six from the line. Adams posted her fourth consecutive double-double at Stony Brook, finishing with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Adams knocked down five of her eight shot attempts in the contest.
Iona opens conference action Friday, when its matches up with Niagara on the road at 7:00 pm.
