McLaughlin picks up third CAC Player of the Week honor this season

YORK Pa. – For the third time this season, senior forward Julia McLaughlin of the Salisbury University women's basketball team was named Capital Athletic Conference women's basketball Player of the Week, the league announce Monday.

McLaughlin is coming off yet another stellar performance this past week, leading the Sea Gulls to a 2-0 week and helping the team clinch a playoff spot.

The Monkton, Maryland native notched a pair of double-doubles last week as Salisbury earned wins over Wesley College and Southern Virginia University.

Against Wesley, McLaughlin tallied 22 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Gulls in a 76-64 home victory last Wednesday. The senior put on a repeat performance against the Knights on Saturday, putting up another 22-point, 10-rebound day to help Salisbury earn a 79-59 win on the road.

McLaughlin also averaged 3.5 assists, two steals, and two blocks while shooting 57.1 percent from the floor on the week.

McLaughlin and the Sea Gulls will be back in action on Wednesday, February 17, when they travel to take on Marymount (Va.) University in a CAC showdown. That game is set for 6 p.m.
