EASTON, Mass. (December 14, 2015) – Stonehill College senior guard Paige Marshall (Braintree, Massachusetts/Braintree) has been selected as the Spalding Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week for women's basketball by the league office today.
Marshall, who earns the weekly honor for the first time in her career, is the second Stonehill women's basketball player to earn the recognition this season after junior guard Kelly Martin (Scituate, Massachusetts/Scituate) collected the award following the first weekend of the season on November 16. Marshall led the Skyhawks to a big 66-56 road win at 13th-ranked Southern New Hampshire University in their lone game of the week on Saturday with a career-high 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting, including 1-for-2 from three-point distance, while converting 9-of-11 free-throw attempts. She also added six rebounds and two assists in the win over the Penmen who were ranked first in the D2SIDA East Regional poll at the time.
Marshall leads Stonehill and ranks fourth among Northeast-10 leaders with 15.9 points per game, shooting 52.4-percent from the field (5th NE-10), including 50% (11-for-22) from three-point range (4th), and converting 75.9% (22-29) of her free-throws. She ranks fourth in the NE-10 with her team-high 3.8 assists per game and second with a +3.1 assist/turnover ratio, which also ranks sixth nationally in Division II. Marshall also contributes four rebounds and a steal in 31.9 minutes per game.
Marshall has played all 96 games in her Stonehill career, starting 94, and totaled 816 points (8.5/gm), shooting 45.4-percent from the field, including 37.1% from three-point distance, and converting 77.1% of her free-throw attempts. She has also totaled 304 rebounds, 224 assists, 74 steals and 29 blocked shots over her career. Marshall has been named to the NE-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll and Athletic Director's Honor Roll all six semesters at the College to date.
Stonehill (6-3, 3-3 NE-10) is back in action with a pair of games at the South Point Holiday Hoops Classic in Las Vegas, Nevada, this weekend. The Skyhawks will play Tarleton State University from Texas on Friday at 6:30 p.m. (EST), before wrapping up the weekend against Midwestern State University, also from Texas, on Saturday at 11 p.m. (EST).
