STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – Damika Martinez, women’s basketball

Iona College women's basketball freshman Damika Martinez has turned heads around the MAAC already, as she was named the first Rookie of the Week and then continued to shine in week two of the season, aiding the Gaels to a pair of victories.

In her first game outside of the Hynes Athletic Center, Martinez finished second on the team with 13 points and six rebounds in a 66-53 victory over Bryant University. Martinez shot 5-of-11 from the field and was perfect making both shots from the line.

When the Gaels returned back to New Rochelle, Martinez was a key part of the 52-48 come-from-behind victory over Stony Brook. Her nine points and six rebounds came in to play late in the second half, when the Gaels outscored the Seawolves, 45-31 in the second stanza after trailing 17-7 at the half.
