Morrison Named to Team of the Week

BOSTON, Mass. – For the second time in her career and for the first time this season sophomore center Kirsten Morrison (North Reading, Mass.) has been named to the Team of the Week, which recognizes the top five players at their respective positions in Division III women's and men's basketball.

Last week, Morrison led the Beacons to a huge 55-51 non-conference win over Westfield State University.  With the victory, UMB ended a 13-game losing streak to the Owls as they dominated both sides of the court to close out their 2012 home schedule undefeated.

Against Westfield, Morrison recorded a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds.  From the field the North Reading native was 10-for-16 (62.5%).  On the glass five of her 11 boards came on the offensive side of the court.  She also contributed two blocks and one steal.  This marks the second weekly honor for Morrison as she was named Little East Conference Player of the Week on Monday.
