YORK, Pa. – The Capital Athletic Conference released its second Women's Basketball Player of the Week award on Monday afternoon, and for the second-consecutive week, the Salisbury University women's basketball team has taken the honor, as senior guard Anna Hackett claimed her first Player of the Week accolade this season, fifth for her career.
Hackett put together a great week on the court through two games last week, averaging 29.5 points per game on 61.3 percent shooting from the field. In the two games, she shot 71.4 percent from behind the arc and 88.9 percent from the charity stripe.
Against Catholic University of America on Wednesday last week, the Germantown, Maryland native recorded a game-high 26 points before dropping a career-high 33 points against Virginia Wesleyan College on Saturday.
With the career-high day against the Marlins, Hackett moved up to the No. 8 spot on the all-time scoring list in program history, jumping alumni Kim Roth (1991-'95) and Josie Harper (1979-'83), both of which ended their careers with 1,293 points. Hackett currently sits at 1,324 points, needing just 70 points to move up another spot on the leaderboard.
Hackett and the Sea Gulls take the court one more time before the Thanksgiving break, as Salisbury welcomes Stevenson University to Maggs Physical Activities Center on Tuesday, November 22 for a 7 p.m., tipoff.
