Marshall picked as women’s basketball Player of the Week
CORTLAND — After assisting the Plattsburgh State women’s basketball team in stringing together three straight triumphs last week, junior guard Brittany Marshall was named the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) women’s basketball Player of the Week Monday.
Marshall netted a game and season-high 19 points during the Cardinals’ 58-54 midweek win at Middlebury College. The junior was 7-of-11 from the field in Plattsburgh’s 2014 debut and maintained her high level of play when she returned to Memorial Hall.
Last Friday night against SUNY Geneseo, the Malone native put in a team-high 14 points and dished out a game and season-high nine assists as the Cardinals forced 29 turnovers in a 62-51 triumph over the Knights.
The following afternoon, Marshall took over down the stretch by scoring eight of the last 18 Plattsburgh points to help her team get by The College at Brockport via a 76-64 tally. By securing the trio of wins, the Cardinals improved to 8-3 overall and 3-1 in league play and have matched the best start over 11 games in program history.
Through the course of the three-game week, Marshall made good on 58.3 percent (17-of-29) of her field goal attempts, averaging 15.7 points per game and averaged 5.7 assists per bout. Currently, Marshall sits at 10th in the 10-team SUNYAC in scoring (13.8 ppg) and second in terms of assists per game (5.1).
A pair of road SUNYAC confrontations is next on the docket for Marshall and the Cardinals. Friday night will see Plattsburgh head south on I-87 to face off against defending SUNYAC champion New Paltz at 6 p.m. before taking part in a 2 p.m. bout the following afternoon at Oneonta State.
