CENTERVILLE, MA - A day after earning MAAC Player of the Week honors, Iona College sophomore forward Joy Adams was named ECAC Division I - Metro/Upstate Player of the Week. Teammate Damika Martinez was recognized by the league earlier this season.
Against Quinnipiac, Adams scored a career high 29 points and pulled down 19 rebounds, her 12th double-double of the season, to help the Gaels to a 95-86 victory over the Bobcats. Adams went 10-for-14 (.714) from the field, and knocked down nine shots from the charity stripe in the win. On the glass, Adams grabbed four of her rebounds on the offensive end and 15 on the defensive end. Adams also added two assists and a steal in the victory.
The Gaels, 13-2 on the season, are back in action Saturday, when they visit Fairfield for an 11:00 am tip.
